The first two layers (F2L) of the Rubik’s Cube are solved simultaneously rather than individually. In the Orient last layer (OLL); Permute last layer PLL 4. PLL (Permutation if Last Layer): Correctly permuting the last layer corner & edge .. the F2L, know the Full PLL and 2 look OLL, and finally go for the full OLL too. So I’m really new to all these terms. Can someone explain to me what the acronyms PLL / OLL / and F2l mean? (And any others that exist).

Thread starter cwdana Start date Feb 8, I just got into p,l a month or so ago. Got a 3x3x3 just before Christmas, learned how to solve it and am addicted.


I now have a 4x4x4 getting decent at it a 2x2x2 ok at it and the 5x5x5 not yet scrambled. I’m at about 1: So I’m really new to all these terms. And any others that exist Thanks!

First Two Layers In general this refers to the solving of the first two layers of the cube in one step by forming cross and then inserting corner edge pairs. This is used in Fridrich a method to solve the cube’s first two layers.

This can be done intuitively without learning algs but instead working it out for yourself or by memorising the 42 case algorithms. Orient Last Layer Once the first two layers have been completed the last layer is ‘oriented’. Imagine that you have started with the white cross, your last layer will be yellow.

Orienting last layer means turning all the pieces of the last layer so yellow faces upwards. There are 57 OLL cases in the Fridrich method.


Permute Last Layer The last step in a Fridrich solve. This swaps the pieces of the last layer around in various ways so that they are correctly ordered. There are 21 PLL cases in the Fridrich method.

I hope this helped. And to add on to all of this – V2l get the Fridrich method I think. I’m pretty sure that’s how I’ve been solving it. Make a white cross, solve the corners, solve layer 2, then layer 3. I’ve been putting the cross at the top. But there seems to be a lot of wasted movement.

But more algs to memorize? I’m not exceptionally intuitive when it comes to the cube. I can’t ever see myself making ‘homemade’ algorithms. But I do enjoy it.
