Step 2: Corners of the first face of the Rubik’s Cube
Once we have resolved the cross of the first face of the Rubik’s Cube, we should solve the rest of the first face putting the corners into their position one by one. We shouldn’t place them wherever we want to because each corner has a determinate position in the Rubik’s Cube.
In a similar way as in the previous step, we follow these solutions. Take into account that you will have to repeat this step four times, one for each corner.
- Hold the Rubik’s Cube in a way in which the yellow face is the top one, and the white face the bottom one.
- Search in the bottom layer for a corner with yellow on it. Pay attention to the three colors in each corner.
- Rotate the bottom layer until such corner is ‘underneath’ its position.
- Apply one of the following solutions:
Case 3: Yellow looking down
Note: if there’s no yellow corner in the bottom layer of the Rubik’s Cube it is because they are in top layer but out of their places. So, put any other corner of the bottom layer in the top one (performing the first solution, for example). This way, you will get the yellow corner to move to the bottom layer.
Repeat this step for each corner until you solve the first layer of the Rubik’s Cube. Now it’s time to see the solutions to build the second layer.
