[:)]You may think at first your unsolving the cube but you should continue anyway and it should fix itself,


I had the same problem at first,


then again you maybe using the wrong algorithim use:Ri Di R D,


hope this helps,

I prefer using a different algorithm ... R U R' U R U2 R' U2.  It twists 3 corners clockwise and leaves the front left corner undisturbed. I think 'Up Right Down Right Up Around Down Around' as I do it.

With a little thought, you can orient everything using it at most 3 times.  If you learn it backwards or left handed, you can orient the top using it only 2 times.

It's been a long time since I used the beginner's method, and I don't know if using another method's top corner process works with the beginners method of getting there. I noticed that when I get to the last layer using blkhwk91d's method, that the arrangement of the top pieces don't exactly look like they did using the beginner method. I may be wrong and if I can fine the beginner method booklet (I know it's around here somewhere) I will see if the two processes are interchangable.

Actually, you know, the booklet's steps are very long. I think the methods are interchangeable at just about any point, but there is a much easier (to remember) way to solve than what the booklet shows. Go to YouTube and check out a series on nine videos (they alkl are very short) by blkhwk91d. If you can watch them in order, you'll be solving like a pro in no time flat.

Anspaughnato~


Did you ever get an answer to this?  I, too, can get to this step everytime and then mess everything up.  It says that the lower layer colors may become scrambled, but I'm not sure I'm doing it right.

I have a video tutorial of how to do this step and I go really slow to make it easy:

Sorry about the response, Marcus

It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.
