Algorithm1: Fi, U, Li, Ui
Goal: To form a cross on the top face while aligning the edge pieces with the center pieces on all four front, right,left, and back faces. See illustration below:
A. How to do it:
1)Position your cube where the white center piece is on Top.
2)Look for the four edge pieces that has whites in it (white&blue, white&red, white&green, white&orange) and begin arranging them so that they form the figure shown above Finding it difficult? Study the example below:
In this step, you will sometimes be in a situation where you have already flipped an edge piece in the right position BUT the colors are oriented the wrong way. This is where you use Algorithm 1. See figure below:
