The solution on this page is from Note's on Rubik's Magic Cube by David Singmaster. I have a copy of this book from 1981 (US Edition). The solution is not the most efficient known, taking over 100 face turns to solve a cube on average. With the animation on this page set to Fastest it still takes about 15 seconds to solve a randomized cube. Note that world-class speed cubers can solve a cube by hand in under 20 seconds!

You'll note that the solution used here procedes in layers:

  • First the top layer is solved.
  • The cube is flipped over, then the the middle layer is solved.
  • Finally the Down (now Up) layer is solved.
