The name CFOP comes from the steps involved (Cross, F2L, OLL, PLL), and you may also see it referred to as the Fridrich method (after Jessica Fridrich, who. CFOP (Cross, F2L, OLL, PLL, pronounced C-F-O-P or C-fop) is a It is also known as the Fridrich Method after its popularizer, Jessica Fridrich. The CFOP Method (Cross – F2L – OLL – PLL), sometimes known as the Fridrich method, is one of the most commonly used methods in speedsolving a 3×3×3.

CFOP is the most frequently used speedsolving method for the 3x3x3 cube. It is also known as the Fridrich Method after its popularizer, Jessica Fridrich. In part due to Fridrich’s publication of the method on her website inCFOP has been the most dominant 3×3 speedcubing method since aroundwith it and its variants used by the vast majority of the top speedcubers such as Feliks ZemdegsMax ParkFridricch WeyerMats Valketc. In reality, many developments were made in the early ’80s by other cubers who have contributed to the method in its current form.

The constituent techniques and their original proposers are as follows:. During the resurgence in speedcubing’s popularity in the late ’90s and early s, there was a general lack of information on the sport. Fridrich’s website offered a vast wealth of information for those entering the sport, including a full description of CFOP with complete lists of algorithms. As a result, many who learned from her website began to call this method the “Fridrich Method,” which explains the common use of the term today.
Several high-profile cubers have long disputed this terminology; Ron van Bruchemfamously, has publicly written that he will never call CFOP the “Fridrich Method.
The term “CFOP” has since seen increasing usage compared to back then, also in part motivated by efforts to standardize terminology in method classification, and is now seen, commonly, fridrichh “Fridrich Method. While some cubers still insist on the term “CFOP,” Fridrich’s contribution to the popularization of the method is undeniable, and many others accept the term “Fridrich Method” as established terminology and a perfectly valid synonym for “CFOP.
In particular, it combines some steps of the said method into one by using many more algorithms. Here, we outline pure CFOP without any additional trick. Also, the cube is commonly solved with the white side on top for the cross, yellow on the bottom for the cross, and opposite for the other steps.
However, it is NOT required. Make a cross on one side by solving all edges of a given face.
A Make sure to align the edges with the second-layer centers. It is recommended that you solve the cross on the bottom, left, right or back face and that you become familiar doing the cross with all colors; not just one. Fill in the four slots between the cross pieces, one slot at a fridrch. Each slot is filled by inserting a corner and its corresponding edge simultaneously. Fridrihc of the 41 cases have reasonable intuitive solutions.
The completion of this step leaves one with just the last layer, typically placed on top.
Those new to OLL break up the step into two. This greatly reduces the number of cases; 2-look OLL has 9 cases.
However, note that this olk a few seconds slower. Those new to PLL break up the step into two. This greatly reduces the number of cases; 2-look PLL has 6 cases. Not logged in Create account Log in.
