=== [[CFOP]] [[F2L]] preferred algorithms ===
'''First Two Layers''', or '''F2L''' are normally the first two bottom layers of the [[3x3x3 cube]], or essentially all layers up until the last layer on larger cubes.
 
  
The definition is a little different depending on the subject or who you are talking to. Usually, it refers to the part of the [[CFOP]] and [[CFCE]] methods that solve the first two layers in [[pair]]s, excluding the [[cross]] step.

My classification:

* Corner on Top
 +
** White on right
 +
***(Near Left, Near Right, Far Left, Far Right, Nearest)
 +
** White on left
 +
***(Near Left, Near Right, Far Left, Far Right, Nearest)
 +
** White on top
 +
***(Near Left, Near Right, Far Left, Far Right, Nearest)
 +
* Corner on Bottom
 +
** White on right (Near, Nearest)
 +
** White on left (Near, Nearest)
 +
** White on bottom (Near, Nearest)
  
[[2-gen]] F2L, most pairs (30:42) have the edge sitting in the U-layer having two orientations, it shows R or F colour at the side. If it is the R colour you can solve the pair using only RU and if it is the F colour you can turn the cube (y') and sovle the pair to the back slot using only RU. The only pairs that needs both R and F turns are the six ones with the edge unoriented in the slot, if the edge is oriented in the slot both ways works.

== Approaches ==
 
 
 
=== Petrus F2L ===
 
 
 
Another way to solve the 'F2L' is by building blocks, common during the first two layers of the [[Petrus]] method.
 
 
 
=== Fridrich F2L ===
 
There are many ways to solve the 'F2L' on a cube.  A common system is using the [[Fridrich]] method first two layer approach.  After solving the cross, a corner-edge pair is paired up, and then inserted into the correct slot.  A total of four corner edge (or 'CE') pairs are made and inserted to solve the first two layers.
 
 
 
The concept of pairing up four corner/edge pairs was first proposed by [[René Schoof]] in 1981.

My Cheat Sheets

Layer by layer steps

This is the cheat sheet I made to learn Layer by Layer:

  • Cross (white)
  • Bottom layer corners
  • Second Layer
Left:
Speedsolving Logo tiny.gif Alg U' L' U L U F U' F'
Right:
Speedsolving Logo tiny.gif Alg U R U' R' U' F' U F
  • Yellow Cross:
Speedsolving Logo tiny.gif Alg F R U R' U' F'
  • Yellow Edges:
Speedsolving Logo tiny.gif Alg R U R' U R U U R'
  • Rotate Yellow Corners:
Speedsolving Logo tiny.gif Alg U R U' L' U R' U' L
  • Orient Corners:
Speedsolving Logo tiny.gif Alg R' D' R D
(x2, or x4, as needed) + (U' to move to the next corner, as needed)

CFOP F2L preferred algorithms

My classification:

  • Corner on Top
    • White on right
      • (Near Left, Near Right, Far Left, Far Right, Nearest)
    • White on left
      • (Near Left, Near Right, Far Left, Far Right, Nearest)
    • White on top
      • (Near Left, Near Right, Far Left, Far Right, Nearest)
  • Corner on Bottom
    • White on right (Near, Nearest)
    • White on left (Near, Nearest)
    • White on bottom (Near, Nearest)


Corner: Top, White: Right (Near Left)
