Your Goal - orient(turn) the corners and solve the Rubik's Cube

 Orienting the last 4 corners of a Rubik's Cube

First, place an unsolved corner(twisted wrongly) at the right-hand side facing you(bottom right) as shown. Perform (Ri Di R D) until the corner is oriented(turned) correctly. Without rotating the cube, turn the top layer such that another unsolved corner is at the right side facing you(bottom right), perform (Ri Di R D) until that corner is solved. Repeat till all corners are solved.

Important: Do not turn rotate the Rubik's Cube, i.e the color facing you remains the same throughout this step. The bottom layer will be messed up during the process, if done correctly, it will return to a solved state after all the corners are done.


Congratulations! You have solved the Rubik's Cube!
