## 2x2 ("Pocket Cube")

 Case #1 R' U' R U' R' U2 R Case #2 L U L' U L U2 L' Case #3 R2 U2 R U2 R2 Case #4 F [R U R' U'][R U R' U'] F' Case #5 F [R U R' U'] F' Case #6 [R U R' U'] [R' F R F'] Case #7 [F R U' R' U' R U R' F']

After performing the above step, if one side is solved orient that side to the right (as seen below) then perform a U' before using the following algorithm. If opposite corners are matched do the algorithm to get a matching side, then perform a U' followed by the algorithm again.

 (If side solved.) U', then: L' U R' D2 R U' R' D2 R2 (If no side solved.) L' U R' D2 R U' R' D2 R2, then: U', then: L' U R' D2 R U' R' D2 R2

## 3a. 2-Look OLL Cross

Dot:
F (R U R' U') F' f (R U R' U') f'
L shape (front right corner):
f (R U R' U') f'
Line (left-to-right):

0 Corners
H : F 3x(R U R' U') F'
Pi : R U2 (R2 U' R2 U' R2) U2 R
1 Corner
Sune : R U R' U R U2 R'
Antisune : L' U' L U' L' U2 L
2 Corners
L : x (R' U R D') (R' U' R D) [x means face the bottom]
T : x (L U R' U') (L' U R U') [x means face the bottom]
U : R2 D R' U2 R D' R' U2 R'

## 4a. 2-Look PLL Corners

Diagonal Corner Swap:
(F R U' R' U' R U R' F') (R U R' U' R' F R F')
(R U R' U' R' F) R2 (U' R' U' R U R' F')

## 4b. 2-Look PLL Edges

3-Edges:
1 (R-to-L): R U' R U R U R U' R' U' R2
2 (L-to-R): L' U L' U' L' U' L' U L U L2
4-Edges:
1 (opposites): M2 U' M2 U2 M2 U' M2
2 (adjacent): M' U' M2 U' M2 U' M' U2 M2 (M' goes upwards)

## Megaminx

Solve all but the last layer "intuitively" using simple movements to move sides and corners and then slot them into place. Great video teaching this approach to the Megaminx: YouTube.

Last layer algorithms (if using the alt version of the corner orientation, this is just like solving the last layer on the 3x3):

• Orient star pieces: F R U - R' U' F' (same as beginner 3x3)
• Permute star pieces: R U R' U R U' U' R (similar to beginner 3x3)
• Orient corners: U R 2U' L' 2U R' 2U' L U
• Orient corners (alt, where L is the back-left face): U R U' L' U R' U' L (same as beginner 3x3)
• Permute corners: R' D' R D (same as beginner 3x3)
