### Algorithm for Solving Last Layer

Dear Fellow Cubers,

Does anyone know of an algorithm that can be used to solve the last layer in one go, without the need for other algorithm's.
P.S. This is for after I've solved the first two layers. -Thanks

### Re: Algorithm for Solving Last Layer

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.

Most speedcubers use oll and pll but I guess that if you can look ahead you con perform them in one set of moves.

but like I said if you can look ahead enough and well enough then you can do both of them in one move.
Your cube is calling for you.

### Re: Algorithm for Solving Last Layer

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.

I think Zeotor and myself have two completely different views on what you are asking.

Do you want to learn 1211+ algs so you can solve the top in 1 go, or do you want to learn one alg that needs reapeating many many MANY times.

Or are you just gonna suck it up and go with something like OLL / PLL etc, like the rest of us?

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.

memorize PLL algs.
