Rotate the corners

All the top layer (yellow) corners should be in the correct spots at this point.Now we need to rotate them where they sit so that the yellow part of each corner ends up on top.

You only need one move to do this. The one below.

With yellow on top do the move above until the top of the cube looks like one of these two pictures. How you hold the cube does not matter aslong as yellow is on top.

diagonal rubiks cube corners

The only yellow that will be on top is the center and one corner or the center and two diagonal corners!


If you stop on the first pic the one with only two yellow squares on top then hold the cube so that the the yellow corner that is on top is in the left front positon.Now do the move above until the top of the cube is all yellow when you look down at it.


last edges solutionIf you landed on the second pic. Three yellow on top in a diagonal.Then look at the front of the cube and turn the entire cube until the top left front corner of the cube is yellow. Do the above move one time and the top of your cube will look like the first pic. Now do as stated above for the first pic.

Your cube should be completley yellow on top and look like the cube on the right.


The last move

You will either have one side of the cube solved or no sides and just the top and bottom solved. If you have one side solved then hold your cube so that that side is in your left hand and do the move below until the cube is solved.

If none of the sides are complete then do the move below one time and then one side will be solved. Now hold that side in your left hand and do the move until it is all solved.

Ok with this move you have to turn the back side of the cube(the part facing away from you)

I am going to show that with the word back on top of that turn.Just reach around to the back and turn in the direction of the arrow just like it was the front only do it on the back.


Thats it you just solved the cube. Now check out the improving time and extra algorithms(moves)pages.
