# Rubik's Cube Cheat Sheet (Solution #2)

This is a single page suitable for printing which contains the moves alone. It's meant as a reminder, not a full solution. For a full solution, see How to Solve the Rubik's Cube. Notation: U = Up, D = Down, F = Front, B = Back, L = Left, R = Right. CW = Clockwise, CCW = Counter-clockwise. X = Turn side X 90° CW, X' = Turn side X 90° CCW, X2 = Turn side X 180°. "Rotate" means to re-orient a piece, keeping its location. "Swap" means for two or more pieces to exchange places. "Move" means to change the location of one piece while disregarding what goes in its original location.

## Step 1 -- U face edge pieces

Solve the four U face edge pieces.

## Step 2 -- U face corner pieces

Solve three of the U face corner pieces.

## Step 3 -- Middle edge pieces

Turn the cube upside-down and solve the UF, UL and UB pieces by swapping the BR piece with the appropriate edge piece.

## Step 4 -- Solve remaining edge pieces

• B U' B' U R' U R U' (Rotate both UR and BR)
• U' R' U' R U' R' U' R U' (Swap UR and BR)
• B U B' U B U B' U2 (Swap and rotate UR and BR)

## Step 5 -- Position corner pieces

This move swaps the UFL, DBR, and one other corner piece. These moves do the same thing but rotate the corner pieces in a different direction.

• [U movement] F' D2 F [U movement] F' D2 F [U movement]
• [U movement] L D2 L' [U movement] L D2 L' [U movement]

## Step 6 -- Orient corner pieces correctly

This move rotates the UFL piece. Move must be done in pairs: one CW and one CCW rotation, operating at the same location.

• L D2 L' F' D2 F (Rotate piece CW)
• F' D2 F L D2 L' (Rotate piece CCW)
