Step 5 - making a yellow cross on the top of the Rubik's Cube

Home Solution overview Step 5

Your Goal - to form a yellow cross as shown above

Your Goal - to form a yellow cross as shown above

After you are done with the second layer on the Rubik's Cube, you will be faced with 4 cases. 1 case is that the yellow cross is already done(as shown above), the other 3 are shown below. 

Do (F R U Ri Ui Fi) x 3 

Do (F R U Ri Ui Fi) x 3 

Hold it as shown and do  (F R U Ri Ui Fi) x 2

Hold it as shown and do

 (F R U Ri Ui Fi) x 2

Hold it as shown and do  F R U Ri Ui Fi

Hold it as shown and do

 F R U Ri Ui Fi

In all three cases, F R U Ri Ui Fi is used. This formula will get the cube from one of the above case into another. Repeating it will eventually form a yellow cross on the top of the Rubik's Cube.
