This method was first developed in the early s combining innovations by a number of speed cubers.

How to Speedsolve the Rubik’s Cube

Czech speedcuber Jessica Fridrich mtehod generally credited for popularizing it by publishing it online in The method works on a layer-by-layer system, first solving a cross typically on the bottom, continuing to solve the first two layers F2Lorienting the last layer OLLand finally permuting the last layer PLL. Basic layer-by-layer methods were among the first to arise during the early s cube craze.


David Singmaster published a layer-based solution in which proposed the use of a cross. The major innovation of CFOP over beginner methods is its use of F2L, which solves the first two layers simultaneously.

This step was not invented by Jessica Fridrich.

According to Singmaster’s report on the world championship, Fridrich was then using a basic layer method, while Dutch competitor Guus Razoux Schultz had a primitive F2L system. The last layer steps OLL and PLL involve first orienting the last layer pieces, then permuting them into their correct positions. This step was proposed by Hans Dockhorn and Anneke Treep. Fridrich switched to F2L later in Her main contribution to the method was developing the OLL and PLL algorithms, which together allowed any last layer position to be solved with two algorithms and was significantly faster than previous last layer systems.
