F - Front | B - Back |

R - Right | L - Left |

U - Up | D - Down |

Front is the side facing you, without regard to color. An appostrophe (') is added to denote a counter-clockwise step.

For example:

- R' - Turn right side counter-clockwise
- D - Turn D Side (Bottom) clockwise
- F2 - Turn Front side twice

Two other reference terms:

- Corner - Fairly obviously any of the 8 corner pieces
- Edge - The piece between two corners

More Terms:
There is also an "M" and "C" that describe the Middle (vertical) and Center (horizontal) cubes.

Move a white edge piece to the bottom, facing down. Rotate the piece to line up with correct center color. Rotate to Top.

Another method:
If there is a white face above the correct color, you can use F' U L' U' to make it face up.

Move white corner piece under its correct position. It can be in one of three positions as shown.

A: | R' D' R |

B: | F D F' |

C: | R' D2 R D R' D' R |

Turn over so that yellow is on top. Move an edge piece into position shown and then move it Left or Right to put in in position.

R: | U | R | U' | R' | U' | F' | U | F |

L: | U' | R' | U | R | U | F | U' | F' |

All yellows will be in the top layer, but many will not be facing up. The first step is to make a yellow cross. The example is a simplification of what you might see. There might be other yellows facing up, but look for the closest pattern to one on the example below.

A: | F | R | U | R' | U' | F' |

B: | F | U | R | U' | R' | F' |

Step 4 will leave a yellow cross in one of 7 possible configurations. The arrow points to the working face.

Fish Right: | ||||||

R | U | R' | U | R | U2 | R' |

Fish Left: | ||||||

R' | U' | R | U' | R' | U2 | R |

The other configurations will take two or more passes to get all yellows facing up.

Once all the yellows are facing up, you need to arrange the side colors. I start with the corners. Find a side with "headlights" (two solved corners), work with headlights on back, and run the routine. If there isn't a side with headlights, do the routine to create them, then run again.

L' | U | R' | D2 | R | U' | R' | D2 | L | R |

Once the corners are solved there are several forms the edge pieces can take. If there is a solved side, put it on the back and run routine. If there isn't a solved side, use the routine once to create one, then run again.

F2 | U | R' | L | F2 | R | L' | U' | F2 |

U' | U |

To move the centers Counter-clockwise, just switch the two steps shown above.

Swapping centers:
If the center colors are opposite each other (blue across from green, red across from orange) use this routine:

M2 U M2 U2 M2 U M2.

M2 U M2 U2 M2 U M2.
