fastest way to solve a rubiks cube

i can solve rubiks cube (official no lube) in just under 2 minutes using this guys method http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsQIoPyfQzM
i want to know the method record holders use to solve rubik cubes
dont tell me PLL or OLL or F2L etc because i dont know what they mean
a video or instructions would be nice. thanks

Re: fastest way to solve a rubiks cube

F2L means solving the first 2 layers in one go. Normally it means solving the cross then pairing up the corner and middle layer edges and inserting them. I have not made a vid on this as there are a great many tricks and far better people to explain it. Youtube is your friend here.

OLL and PLL are normally used as terms to describe Orienting and Permuting the last layer. That is correctly twisting then positioning the pieces. There are a great many vids on these.

There are normally 2 main methods of OLL / PLL. The easier method is 2 look OLL, PLL. I have made vids in how to do this.

Yes I make a mistake in one vid, but the algorithm is correct in the notes.

There is a more complex method that is much faster with full OLL / PLL algs. I couldn't be bothered to learn 100+ algs though.

The world champions tend fast methods like "full fridrich" and "petrus". Youtube is again your friend. I get by on the above methods, rather than the really fast ones. I average about 40 seconds and have a personal best of about 33.5.
Please take off topic discussion off this forum. Thanks.

Re: fastest way to solve a rubiks cube

Don't tell? You need to research and learn.
Now, most people learn Fridrich, and the thing about the method you're using right now is that it would be hard to switch to Fridrich using it.
But with a bit of effort you can switch, and go below 30 secs in a few months if you are serious.
lol, here to help ^_~

thanks but is that the fastest way to solve the cube?

Re: fastest way to solve a rubiks cube

There is no fastest way. It depends on the person. You could be good at blockbuilding, or have the ability to memorize algorithms very quickly.
The main points in speed is fingertricks and lookahead. Without those two it would be hard to get as fast as you may want to.

Re: fastest way to solve a rubiks cube

Any method can be a fastest. Just because the world record holder "prefers" CFOP (Fridrich Method), doesn't mean you use it. The world record holder just acts as a role model/example of how fast you can get currently get at this time of the world.

There are tons of other methods, and with enough practicing you can be good with any method. CFOP (Fridrich) method is the most widely used, leaving other methods "under-looked" upon. Methods like ZBLL, Roux, Petrus, L2L, Waterman etc. are all available good methods.

No one can quite say "Oh this method is faster that method."
