# Step 7: Turn the corners of the Rubik’s Cube

In the previous step we have solved the Rubik’s Cube in order to put all the pieces into their right position. We just have left the rotation of the last layer corners and we’ll have solved the Rubik’s Cube.

Maybe there are two, three or four incorrectly oriented corners in the last layer of the Rubik’s Cube. If there are two incorrectly oriented corners, we will execute the following solution with a variant or another depending on the scenario we have.

## READ THIS BEFORE MOVING THE CUBE!

Very Important: This step is not as easy as others, but not much more complicated. But before proceeding to solve it you must know a few things. In Case 1 there are three subcases, so first of all is to see what subcase is the one that you have. To resolve this step, execute the first set of movements. Then, make the correspond movement depending on the variant of the red table you have. Finally, follow the last set of movements.

### Case 1: (Read first the above message) Two corners incorrectly oriented

Notice that the ‘nearest’ corner is the one that needs a clockwise rotation.

### Cases 2, 3 and 4: Three or four corners incorrectly oriented

If there are three or four incorrectly oriented corners, set the Rubik’s Cube like you see in the photos and apply the first of the previous solutions, solving at least one of the corners. Finally, execute the corresponding solution to the case you have obtained.

What does “+ Repeat Step 7″ mean?
You will not be able to solve this case directly. However, if you perform the movements specified, you will get another case for this step.

If you have made it all the way to here, you have solved the Rubik’s Cube. Congratulations!

## Buy a Rubik’s Cube and much more!

I have a different case. I have only one corner incorrectly oriented
In that case, your cube is unsolvable. Take a look at how to fix your unsolvable Rubik’s Cube.

Thanks alot! I learned how to solve the 3×3 cube from this site!
Can you make one like this for 4×4 and also for 5×5? Based the remaining steps on the 3×3?
The 2×2 is simply following steps 2, 6, 3 on the inverted colors and 7 of the 3×3 offered here.

but WTH i actually solved it now.
thnks 4 the help man!!!

Congratulations for solving the cube, Sophia!
In order to memorise the solution, you should not try to remember each movement. You should try to look to just a piece or two and check how they move around the cube. Good luck!

Sir, in the last step, i have followed it correctly but at last i’m left with 1 corner unsolved. While in your steps, you have made cases for all, 3 or 2 unsolved.

• Rubik's Cube
Sep 11, 2013 @ 11:22:11

Akash, your cube is unsolvable. You need to take the pieces apart and put them back together in the solved position. Then, you will be able to solve it. But right now, it is impossible to solve that cube.

This is the best page I have found so far. Really well described.
I used to be able to solve the cube when I was young.
Recently I was trying to teach my son and couldn’t recall some of the moves.
Now all I have to do is show him your page!
Good job.

• Rubik's Cube
Oct 28, 2013 @ 11:33:28

Hasmit, if the rest of the cube is solved, your cube is unsolvable. Take an edge apart from the cube, put the pieces in their correct position, and put the edge back in the cube. Now, your cube will be solvable.

I love the Rubik’s cube & these instructions are amazing,
I have the top layer all white & completed, but 3 of the corners are not in the right place.

How can I simply swap them?

• Rubik's Cube
Nov 11, 2013 @ 11:21:13

Hi Kayla! You have to move them to their positions (step 6) and then turn them (step 7). Good luck!

Hi, thanks for sharing such easy steps to solve. I am solving now within 4 mins. Recently I have come across a impossible corner to solve. I tried to reshuffle and solve from scratch many times. But still it comes to final one corner not solvable. My question is how a solved cube becomes un solvable without physically removing it?

• Rubik's Cube
Nov 24, 2013 @ 12:14:57

Hi Nataraj! If the cube is a little bit loose, maybe the corner has turn around in its position.

Thank you very much for the great site. I have struggled with many others and they have so many typoes that solution attempts are frustrating. Your steps are checked and clearly laid out. NOW, how do you suggest that I go about solving the cube without constantly following your instructions? :-)

• Rubik's Cube
Feb 17, 2014 @ 11:08:18

Congratulations Henri! In most of the steps, you normally combine an edge and a corner. They move around the cube and then go back together to their position.

Normally, it’s better not to memorise the movements, but to take a look to how these pieces move around the cube.
