# Superflip alg not working for me

I have tried several times to get the superflip knowing that for the B face what looks clockwise is counterclockwise. I did this algorithm without changing sides or anything:

U R2 F B R B2 R U2 L B2 R U' D' R2 F R' L B2 U2 F2

This is the superflip algorithm. I never get the superflip when I do this algorithm. More specifically I get the superflip on only 2 sides and half a superflip on the other 4. And the 2 sides that have the superflip are always opposite each other like If I do it on the white side I get the superflip on the red and orange sides but no other sides. And if I invert the whole thing by making all U U' and all R' R and so on I should get the same thing but inverted. I don't get that either when I invert the algorithm that way. I think the problem might be an R' missing at the end of the algorithm

If you look at the B face from the back, clockwise is clockwise...

Well how come the algorithm worked for you but for me I had to add an R' at the very end for it to work?

And yes I know that but since I didn't want to change sides I looked at every face of the cube from the front and for the B face if I look at it from the front clockwise is counterclockwise and vice versa

you obviously performed the algorithm wrongly.

It most definitely works. You are probably doing your B or D turns wrong.

You probably got your B move wrong. Try turning it the other way and see what happens.

1. (M' U)*4
2. x y'
3. Do steps 1 and 2 twice more

= superflip

Nope. If you rotate your cube to look at a face, clockwise is clockwise is clockwise.

EDIT: Also, there's only one B turn in the algorithm you listed. If it doesn't work one way, just do the opposite the next time and itll work. All the other B's are B2.

EDIT2: I would actually be willing to be the problem is your D' turn. Try it the other way
