Social Link. Postage and Packaging. What is Fridrich? Why the CFOP in the title? Fridrich method was invented by Jessica Fridrich of Czech Republic in the 's. In part due to Fridrich's publication of the method on her website in , CFOP has been the most dominant 3x3 speedcubing method since around , with it and its variants used by the vast majority of the top speedcubers. In particular, every speedcuber ranked in the top 10 by 3x3 average at any point since has used a variant of CFOP.
All of the worlds best use a variant of this method, apart from selected few that uses Roux. This method is for people who can solve the rubik's cube, hopefully using the beginner layer by layer method, and want to get faster and serious about speedcubing. This could be done in less than 6 moves most of the time. More explained below. Your aim is to make all yellow sides face up. There are 57 algorithms. You permute move the pieces on the last layer to solve the entire cube.
This is completely intuitive, and is probably the hardest part in this method. Having said that, you can still with a bit of practice, see the best cross solution in 15 seconds and execute it in well under 3 seconds.
In fact, sub-2 cross is not even that hard. All cross can be solved in 7 moves, and a big majority of them only need 6 moves. However, you will need to spend a decent amount of time practising this step and the best way to do it is to solve it blindfolded. Take as long as you want to plan out your cross and solve it blindfolded. You should now decide whether you want to be colour neutral or, well, not colour neutral.
This is explained further in the link below. If you're still confused, take the picture to my left. This is fairly intuitive and easy so you should find all four pairs this way. Now we solve both pieces at the same time.
This is the major difference between F2L and Layer by layer. You can learn to do this intuitively, which is not as hard as it seems. Or you can use algorithms. Don't worry if you don't want learn all that yet. This is what 2-look is for. You solve a cross on top. Then you do the corners. This is highly recommended and you should learn this before you learn PLL.
Using 2-look you can get sub easily so don't feel you have to learn all the 57 algorithms yet. Well, there are 57 algorithms and that is quite a lot. Do not feel you have to learn this straight away.
Even experienced cubers don't learn this for years. Just take your time. PLL Permutation of the Last Layer is where y ou permute move the pieces on the last layer to solve the entire cube.
There are 21 algorithms. I highly recommend learning this before you learn full OLL. You can also do this in 2-Look. But I don't recommend it because it is significantly slower than full PLL.
How to Solve the Rubik's Cube/CFOP
Although it requires you to memorise many up to 78 different algorithms, it's one of the fastest speedcubing methods. It is recommended that you should start learning using the beginner method first, then use the Fridrich method once you have become proficient at that. The cross is done intuitively. It is usually done starting with the white coloured squares.

CFOP is the most frequently used speedsolving method for the 3x3x3 cube. It is also known as the Fridrich Method after its popularizer, Jessica Fridrich. In part due to Fridrich's publication of the method on her website in , CFOP has been the most dominant 3x3 speedcubing method since around , with it and its variants used by the vast majority of the top speedcubers such as Feliks Zemdegs , Max Park , Sebastian Weyer , Mats Valk , etc. In reality, many developments were made in the early '80s by other cubers who have contributed to the method in its current form.
