FLFL is a 3x3x3 method created by David Larios in early 2016. The method is a result of exploration into a variety of different methods. Originally, its creation was designated to be an experimental variant of the Heise method, however, after much undeserved entertainment, it was developed into a mediocre (in regard to its speed-solving viability) method.

Inspired by Ryan Heise's Method and Bernd Bruegmann's Y-Move Method.


  • F2L-1CE: First Two Layers minus One Corner-Edge Pair (No algorithms required). The approach used to complete this step does not matter.
  • LFE: Last Five Edges. The objective is to solve all of the remaining edges (No algorithms required).
  • FLLC: First Layer; Last Corner. The objective is to solve the last corner in the first/down layer while preserving the edges solved during LFE.
  • L4C: Last Four Corners.
