The Fridrich method algorithms are Cross, Solve the First Two Layers, Orientation of the Last Layer and Permutation of the Last Layer. The Fridrich method uses these algorithms to quickly solve a 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube.
This method uses a layer-by-layer or four-step system:
- Making a cross at the bottom layer - solves four edge pieces on one side. It can be done in 8 seconds using eight turns or less.
- Solving the first two layers simultaneously - solves the corner and edge pieces at the same time.
- Orienting the last layer - works on the top layer so that all top cubes have the same color.
- Permuting the last layer - solves the cube by moving the top layer pieces while keeping their orientation. This method is also called the CFOP.
