3CFCEP stands for 3 cross pieces, F2L, corner orientation, edge orientation and placing in respective layers, and PLL.

The steps in this method are as follows:

  1. Complete a mock cross of three edges and one (possibly unoriented) edge of opposite color.
  2. Complete all F2L corner-edge pairs.
  3. Orient LL corners. This can be combined with the previous step via F2LL.
  4. Orient edges in LL and place the last cross-edge simultaneously.
  5. Standard PLL.
