I have a square one that i just bought and I'm now placing the edges on the right layers.. but the problem is 1. I dont know what the default face would be and 2. I used cube zone (http://www.cubezone.be/square1step3.html) but I would get stuck because it would say like for the first one it's algorithm (0,-1) / (-3,0) / (4,1) / (-4,-1) / (3,0) / (0,-1) but on the (4,1) I would end up in the middle of a large corner piece and i can't do the right 180 degree turn. If you could point me to a better guide or help me with it that would be amazing! thank you!

Are you holding the cube with the line on the middle layer on the left of the F face?

Edit: this line must be on the left of the F face, not the right.

Oh thanks I didn't know that and now I will try that

Edit: It still doesn't work when I try (0,-1) / (1,4) / (-1,-4) / (-3,0) / (4,1) / (-1,0) any help with that?

One thing i found with my square one was the position of the middle bars. It varies between cubes wether the big bar and small bar were in which positions. Most times i had to off-set the top and bottom layers.

It does work. You're probably just doing a move as its negative by accident or something (like (0, 1) instead of (0, -1)).
Nevermind I figure out by the video EVH linked that the top and bottom turn different ways if they are both negative


edit: Now I have a new problem, I'm in a parity. I've got everything done except two edges that are right next to each other. Does anybody know an algorithm that will fix that?
