Rubik's Cube Solution

Finishing the Top Layer

Congrats on finishing the Yellow Cross. In this step, we will focus on finishing the Top Layer. Do not worry about getting the correct corners in their spots. There are three scenarios you will have to recognize. In this step, there is only one algorithm. Place your cube in one of the three scenarios and do the following algorithm. 

Three Scenarios

Rubik's Cube Solution

IF THE TOP LAYER (yellow side) HAS NO YELLOW CORNER PIECES SHOWING ON TOP LIKE Figure 5.1, PLACE A LEFT CORNER PIECE ON THE LEFT FACE AS SHOWN. 

*IN THE CASE OF THE PICTURE ON THE LEFT, YOU WOULD BE VIEWING THE CUBE WITH THE GREEN CENTER FACE IN FRONT*

Figure 5.1

Rubik's Cube Solution

IF THE TOP LAYER HAS ONE YELLOW CORNER PIECE, PLACE THE TOP LAYER AS SHOWN AND DO THE FOLLOWING ALGORITHM.

Figure 5.2

Rubik's Cube Solution

IF THE TOP LAYER HAS MULTIPLE YELLOW CORNER PIECES , MATCH A YELLOW LEFT CORNER PIECE IN THE FRONT FACE AS THE PICTURE SHOWN.

Watch the video for clarification. Make sure you are practicing over and over every step until you can do it in your sleep. I want you to keep solving the cube up to the step you know until you are dreaming about it. 100% serious.

Doing the Algorithm once does not necessarily mean you will achieve the Yellow Top. After a sequence if you recognize another scenario, adjust the cube accordingly and repeat the algorthim. After 1-3 times of doing the alorithm above. You will acquire the Yellow top!
