Am I the only one that messed up the 5th step like a billion times? Edit: Wow! thanks for all the likes!

How to solve a Rubik's Cube 1) Get your Rubix cube in your hand. 2) Throw it at a wall. 3) Glue the pieces together.

Can you make the title of this something more click-baity so that it can compete with other tutorials? It's by far the best tutorial on YouTube that I've seen, so I want others to use it!
FogonDoesArt TB
This is the best tutorial ! I did have to watch a couple of times to get it but in The end I could! Now I can solve a cube in 3 mins Thank you
John Laurens
I messed up and im crying cuz it was the last step ;.; 😭😭😭😭😭😢😢😢😢
Joy G
Oh my God I'm so happy! Finally after years trying to figure out this frustrating cube finally I made it! Thankyou sm OMG u explained it well I'm so happy! I'll use all my acc. to like ur video lol
MisterVercetti
Do you happen to have some sort of teaching background, by any chance? I ask because this is, by far, the best tutorial on the Internet. Never have I seen each step laid out so clearly and concisely - even the official Rubik's cube channel couldn't accomplish what you have. Even a total moron can solve a Rubik's cube with this guide. Congratulations on a job well done.

*learns to rubiks* *brings rubiks to school* kids:woah can you teach me that
Grace Cooke
I got up to solving the yellow face and it got all messed up and now I have to start all over again :( Edit after 3 days: DID IT!!!

Best guide out there. NEW LEARNERS KNOW THIS you do not have to be a genius to solve these things. This guide (as I now have learned) simply shows you the algorithms to apply to different situations. If you are patient and focused, you can master it in a a few hours. Now, all my friends are super impressed and think I'm some visual memory genius when in actual fact, it's the simplest thing that anyone can learn. I try to teach my friends how to do it as well but they give up 5 minutes in thinking they have to be Einstein but if you simply persist, you'll learn how easy it really is.

Carson Essi
Wow I wanted to die through every step😘
lottie5
The way you told us on how to solve the daisy is really hard... Because Your cube looked different to mine I would advise starting from the full cube ( I mean fully solved)
Amani Mayassi
I always solve the White by myself and then I mess the whole thing up and solve the White again
jihad khadder
i love you ! thank you so so so much i spent 3 days teying it tell it worked i am the happiest person in the world
Abhiman thapa
Thank you so much for making a awesome video. Initially so hard to figure out I watched carefully many times and finally learn how to solve it. Thanks for this video.
TheGaming Pro
Nice work But I messed up the last step , the positioning of the last layer edges
lyraface
Hahaha, I just completed the cube my dad has been trying to do since the 1980s. He’s so mad, it’s great.
PetkoProto
After 20 or more tries (no but actually) it worked I made it I solved the rubik's cube for the first time
Sunita Devi
Thanks because of you I could solve the cube
JohnPro Bercero
Yay! Ibloody finally done it. For 3 day straight.

You might want to mention that step 6 will scramble part of the already solved pieces, but those affected pieces will be restored once all 4 corners are twisted properly (anytime the righty move is done for a multiple of 6 times). The righty move done twice twists the DFR corner clockwise. There are 5 basic patterns, all corners twisted correctly (0 rightys),1 corner counter clockwise + 1 corner clockwise (6 rightys), 3 corners counter clockwise (6 rightys), 3 corners clockwise (12 rightys), 2 corners anti-clockwise + 2 corners clockwise (12 rightys).

who else thinks it's so satisfying finally being able to complete a rubiks cube?

7 hours later: I’ve yet to get one of the three options shown in step 4, I’ve always got at least one extra yellow, and that completely fs up step 5
L McEwan
I’ve never been able to solve a Rubik cube until this video😁😁. And trust me... I’ve looked at a lot of videos💛💛😁

Who else watched the whole video without having a rubik’s cube? 😂
MARVEL1117 _KIM
I watched almost every single video in youtube but I couldn't solve it. But I watched your video at last and solved it. Thank you so much
kundan kumar
I can't seem to find the worksheet in the description. That PDF link sends to a website where a lot of searching resulted in no worksheet. Great and most helpful video, but I would really like to have the worksheet for further practice as it is hard to remember all the steps and I don't want to come back to a YouTube video due to data limitations.☹️

Faintest Of Breath
I solved my first Rubik's Cube in less than a week thanks to this video. Thanks a million for the tutorial!
gooby goober
On the 7th step there is an easier way to do it If you do not have a solid side do this Right alg, left alg, then reverse right alg, then reverse left alg, Once you get your solid color position it where it's in front of you then look on the left or right side look at the top middle color if it matches with one of the colors of one of those sides your gonna start on that. For example: solid in front of me flip cube left to check color green with rest orange then go back to solid color flip cube right color blue with rest green so you would start with right alg, then left alg, then reverse right alg, then reverse left alg, then your done If you have a question I'm happy to help :)

Jule Rulez
I learned how to solve it myself.(i just knew that i should solve the first row then second then corners and middle in the end) Totally different fomula's! Came here to learn proper way -and could learn-but im dissapointed that there's x5, x3 moves-it takes too much juggling!Thank's a lot anyway! Maybe theres short formulas too?
mario paraschiv
but my yellow side is a u form... wtf do i do

Rod Porterfield
My daughter bought herself a cube...but I've been at it since we got it home! Couldn't figure it out...then I found your tutorial. It took me all day to get used to performing the algorithms without screwing it up, but I did and it's solved!!! Now I can get some sleep (it's 2AM)!!!
Mohammed M Hilal
So I've seen many videos and this is the only video worked out with me! Thank u!

Thx so much i gave a subscribe

i can't solve 1x1
jijokutty
Friendly tip : 30:48 Step 6:Twisting last the layer corners. Dont stop once the yellow sticker has been twisted. Complete the righty algorithm. If you stop in the middle, your cube will be scrambled, by the time you are finished twisting all the corners. Learnt this the hard way. @@UCfZGUwLPuHca5ZO_crTUOlA - Awesome tutorial. I completed my first cube in 3 hours. Great job.

In step 3 he says spin right but actually spins left
