PLL is the acronym for Permutation of the Last Layer. Permutation of the Last Layer is the last step of many speedsolving methods. In this step, the pieces on the. Symmetric.

Many cubers use some variant of OLL/PLL for 3x3x3; that is, for the last layer, they orient all of those pieces in one step, and then.

Make a white side, but not a white layer. If you have to permute pieces in just one layer, you can use a normal PLL algorithm, but if you have to permute pieces in both layers, you get to use a much faster Ortega algorithm!

PLL Information Proposer s: I tried it out and they looked pretty nice, but it’s easy to mistake fuchsia for red, so I changed them to the more conventional orange. Eastsheen doesn’t really allow for corner cutting either, but the difference is that the Eastsheen 2×2 doesn’t jam when you try to cut a corner.

2×2 Tutorial Ortega method – Cube-Tips

Rubik’s alhorytmy bear the Japanese color scheme yellow next to white which can make recognition more difficult. M2′ u M2′ u2 M2′ u M2′.

A-PLL a Used in: G-PLL d Used in: R-PLL a Used in: J-PLL b Used in: R2 U2 R’ U2 R2. Categories 3x3x3 last layer substeps Acronyms Algorithms. Retrieved from ” https: One algorytny difference is color scheme. N-PLL b Used in: There are two main brands: Also, the Eastsheen 2×2 is of a larger size which is suitable for speedsolving.


A-PLL b Used in: U-PLL a Used in: If you like, try out all of the available algorithms for a case to see which alogrytmy feels the fastest to you – the same algorithm may not be the fastest for everyone, and shorter algorithms are not algorytym faster than longer ones. Not logged in Create account Log in. The Ortega method is actually a “corners first” 3×3 method, but it adapts so well to the 2×2 that most people just know it as a 2×2 method.

Once again thank you lance for letting me use your pictures and some of your algorttmy. The permutation images on this page do not take this into account.

MZRG – Megaminx OLL and PLL

Note that all of these algorithms are written in the Western notationwhere a lowercase letter means a double-layer turn and rotations are denoted by x, y, and z. R-PLL b Used in: Here’s how it works: Permutation of the Last Layer is the last step of many speedsolving methods.

This algorithm only works for Ortega. Permute all the pieces at once!

Megaminx OLL and PLL

U-PLL b Used in: There are 21 PLLs 13 if you count mirrors and inverses as being the same and each one is named after a letter. If you learn this, it will give you a surprising boost in speed over LBL. Special thank you to Lance for his pictures and some of his info.


M2′ u’ M2′ u2′ M2′ u’ M2′. Wiki tools Special pages. Neither one is fantastic, but Eastsheen is much better than Rubik’s for a couple of reasons. The method described on this page is called algoyrtmy Ortega method, which is slightly more advanced than the normal LBL layer-by-layer method you might have taught yourself.

G-PLL c Used in: The diagrams below are top views of where you want the pieces to go. G-PLL a Used in: Because your first algorytjy is much easier, and your “PLL” is much faster than normal as well.

Page actions View View source History More. All you care about is that oll 4 white stickers are together, it doesn’t matter if the pieces are in the right spots relative to one another In fact, it’s better if they aren’t!

N-PLL a Used in: In this pll, the pieces on the top layer have already been oriented OLL so that the top face has all the same color, and they can now be moved into their solved positions. G-PLL b Used in:
