I don’t know what to do from the upside down T

1. Diego de Pereda says:

You have to see which case de you have and perform the algorithm.

2. Kyle says:

When it comes to completing the second row, i can get most of the middle/ corner pieces in place until it comes to Orange-Green and blue-orange. When i get one of them in place, the other one goes to the bottom row, when i get that one in place the other one is on the bottom row. 9/10 times when getting to this step i will have this problem. But occasionally i can go on to complete the cube. Help anyone? Thanks

3. Diego de Pereda says:

Hi Kyle. You should be careful to have the cube just like in the images before starting the movements. What you explained shouldn’t happen.

This is very confusing.

If you are having trouble, use this link in YouTube it really helped when this website kept messing up my pattern. https://youtu.be/aTG-M98z4R4 He explains everything step by step and gives you many senerios for what you might have and how to solve it. Good luck! 🍀

I can’t understand 3Rd step
Help me

1. Diego de Pereda says:

In which part do you have problems?

6. sanjana says:

Hey
I started with white Cross ;in second layer I am getting only one corner
I don’t have non yellow in 3 layer and inverted T
What to do

1. Diego de Pereda says:

Check the section “There is not any edges without white color in the upper layer”. Good luck!

M not able to solve it

8. hagdwgh says:

it is very confusing

9. tal says:

i can’t solve it it is so hard

10. Robbie says:

I have he whole second layer except the green orange piece. The green is on the orange side and the orange is on the green side. How do I fix that?

11. Carlos Ramos says:

The solution for ‘There is not any edges without white color in the upper layer’ is missing

12. Leah says:

“Rotate the top layer until that edge and the lateral center color matches, forming a T inverted.” What if they already match?
Also, I’m finding that the wording becomes very confusing in the case solutions, since when you say turn left, the image shows turning right, and vice versa. Could you please provide some clarification as to which is the case?

13. Pikachu says:

so hard

14. Sofia Smith says:

What if a piece is the wrong way around how do u turn it

15. JC says:

I started with white on the bottom. I have completed the second row except for the green side. The only other green tiles are on the top of the cube. How do I move it to the side without messing it up? It is not the same as the “There is not any edges without white color in the upper layer” because it isn’t on one of the other sides. It is on the top.

16. Ralph G says:

This explanation is very poorly written.

17. MAC says:

i cant solve 2nd layer not properly explained

18. Anomaly says:

I’ve been using mnemonic devices for a few of the steps and it helps immensely! I can solve the cube about 98% of the time now from 3-5 minutes each time. I am having strange issue with step 3. A small percentage for the time I will end up with my solid yellow up face and solid white down face (of course by this point) and one off color edge piece in each sides top layer and all other tiles correct. No matter how many times I do the algorithm I end up with this same result unable to go on to step 4. Help! Anyone know any tips for this. I’m not sure if I’m just mistepping somewhere to make this happen and not realizing.
