Are you for real? The "no big words plz" solution is to peel off all the little coloured stickers and put them back so the cube looks like this.

Seriously, its meant to be a HARD PUZZLE. If you are told how to do it, that's cheating, and you may as well throw it in the trash.

It is meant to be a test of your concentration. Some people take weeks to do it. If you cannot concentrate sufficiently, throw it in the trash and do something else. You'd need a whole book to describe how to solve it. These do exist, so maybe you should go to a bookstore.



Rubik's Cube Cheat Sheet

This contains the moves alone. It's meant as a reminder, not a full solution.

Notation: U = Up, D = Down, F = Front, B = Back, L = Left, R = Right. CW = Clockwise, CCW = Counter-clockwise. X = Turn side X 90 CW, X' = Turn side X 90 CCW, X2 = Turn side X 180. "Rotate" means to re-orient a piece, keeping its location. "Swap" means for two or more pieces to exchange places. "Move" means to change the location of one piece while disregarding what goes in its original location.

Step 1 -- Do the first face

Solve one face, with all corners and edge pieces in their correct locations. If you can't do this without the cheat sheet you're not ready for the cheat sheet.

Step 2 -- Do the middle layer edge pieces

* F' D' F D L D L' (move edge piece from BD to FL)
* F D F' D' R' D' R (move edge piece from BD to FR)

Step 3 -- Form cross on last layer

* B U L U' L' B' (Rotate UB and UL pieces)
* B L U L' U' B' (Rotate UB and UF pieces)

Step 4 -- Rotate U face edge pieces

* R2 D' U2 R' L F2 R L' D R2 (Swap UF, UB, UR CW)
* R2 D' R' L F2 R L' U2 D R2 (Swap UF, UB, UR CCW)
* R2 D2 B2 D L2 F2 L2 F2 L2 F2 D' B2 D2 R2 (Swap UF and UR; swap UB and UL)

Step 5 -- Position U face corner pieces

* L' U R U' L U R' U' (Swap UFL, UBL, UBR CW)
* U R U' L' U R' U' L (Swap UFL, UBL, UBR CCW)
* R' B2 F R F' R' F R F' R' F R F' R' B2 R (Swap UFL and UBR; swap UFR and UBL)
* B L U L' U' L U L' U' L U L' U' B' (Swap UFL and UFR; swap UBL and UBR)

Step 6 -- Rotate corner pieces

Operates on UFR piece. Must do 2 or 3 at a time (one CW, one CCW; or three CW; or three CCW)

* F D F' D' F D F' D' (turn clockwise)
* D F D' F' D F D' F' (turn counter-clockwise)

I told you it is HARD.

Personally, I can think of better things to do with my time.
