To complete the cross here, I just need to do R2 then realign.

Is there an easy way to preserve the green orange pair (I know nothing about making x cross)


View attachment 10256
R U2 R D' to finish the cross, L' U' L to insert. The pair isn't "fully" preserved by R U2 R D', but it'll still be a three-move insert (which is all that really matters).

What about F', R2, F, D'?
That removes the white-green edge.

Aha! So that’s how to do those cases. Thanks as always. I’m getting a lot more 14 and 15 second solves now, still a long way to go...

Hi, I am new at rubik's cube and when i try to do an beginner method solve this happens.
I can do first 2 layers but when it comes to make an yellow(for me) cross I cant because it doesnt matter which video i watch it doesnt shows my shape and i dont know what to do. I get a 2 yellow pieces on the bottom next to each other AND I CAN'T SOLVE IT.
Thanks for helping.

Do you mean yellow pieces or I need to hurt an second layer and fix it?
Any edge piece; it doesn't matter.

The easiest option would be choosing the one edge on the yellow side that has the yellow sticker pointing to the side, but if you want to flip one of the second-layer edges instead, that works too.

i can make an video while im solving it.

I did solve my cube 6 or 7 times and i go to sleep then when i woke up I CANT SOLVE it its just like a joke but i successfuly do all 2nd layer and 3rd layer(remember i got a 1 corner problem i solved it with twisting it and starting over) but i am now having the problem on the title when i finish the 2nd layer there is no hook or dot or bar or anything i am having this problem over and over help me please.
Thanks for the reply.

Is your cube scrambled when you wake up?

If you're not living alone, consider the possibility that someone is secretly twisting/flipping pieces to make the cube unsolvable while you're asleep. Maybe they hate your guts, maybe it's just a silly prank.

I need to know about why e-perm always going to h-perm. I learn form cubeskills.com. So, Please help to do the correct execution.
There are two angles at which, if you do your algorithm, it will solve the case. At the other two, it will resolve into H-Perm.
Try to do it from a different angle that what you currently do

I've always heard that learning COLL is really useful, but I've never really seen the use for it. When can COLL be used if I did the cross, f2l, oll and pll normally?

The reason it's useful is that whenever you happen to have an OLL with all of your edges oriented, you can make it so that you only have an EPLL (or a skip). This will come up at least 1/8 of the time, or more if you use tricks like easy VHLS cases to give you oriented edges. Most people think that it's not worth it to know the sune and antisune cases though, since they're so fast already.
