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.

There are two main brands: Wiki tools Special pages.

All you care about is that the 4 white stickers are together, it doesn’t matter if the pieces are in the right spots relative to one another Algogytmy fact, it’s better if they aren’t! Permute all the pieces at once!

R-PLL b Used in: Permutation of the Last Layer is the last step of many speedsolving methods. Firstly, the Rubik’s 2×2 is far too small to be speedsolved and the mechanism doesn’t allow for corner cutting.

Because your first algoryrmy is much easier, and your “PLL” is much faster than normal as well. Neither one is fantastic, but Eastsheen is much better than Rubik’s lagorytmy a couple of reasons.

The following page gives a list of all of the PLLs, along with a picture and a list of common algorithms for each one. Rubik’s 2x2s bear the Japanese color scheme yellow next to white which can make recognition more difficult. Categories 3x3x3 last layer substeps Acronyms Algorithms.

Which sort of 2×2 should you use? Make a white algkrytmy, but not a white layer. N-PLL a Used in: Also, the Eastsheen 2×2 is of a larger size which is suitable for speedsolving.

If you like, try out all of the available algorithms for a case to see which one feels the fastest to you – the same algorithm may not be the fastest for everyone, and shorter algorithms are not always faster than longer ones. The method described on this page is called the Ortega method, which is slightly more advanced than the normal LBL layer-by-layer method you might have taught yourself.


If you learn this, it will give you a surprising boost in speed over LBL. A-PLL b Used in: G-PLL a Used in: Special thank you to Lance for his pictures and some of his info. N-PLL b Used in: Once again thank you lance for letting me use your pictures and some of your info.

Retrieved from ” https: U-PLL b Used in: G-PLL b Used 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.

Megaminx OLL and PLL

U-PLL a Used in: 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.

I tried it out algorrytmy they looked pretty nice, but it’s easy to mistake fuchsia for red, so I changed them to the more conventional orange.
