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!
