I think there's a god algorithm. If you repeat it sooner or later you can solve the cube from any state. I don't know it. I hear it's complex, and you may have to perform it billions of times to get a solved cube.
But yes... there IS one algorithm. Pointless but true.
Please take off topic discussion off this forum. Thanks.
There are at least 1211 algorithms to solve the last layer in one step. The exact number may not have been proved yet. I think that the 1211 algorithms does not include things like mirror cases. If you go to this website and go to "Algorithms" at the top, under "Final layer" there are links that have all of the 1211 algorithms.
Well borginator2, when I first read the question, I thought of the answer I posted. Then, I read your what you wrote and realized that my understanding of the question was not what was being asked. However, I decided to post my response in case that was what the question was about.
