The cross, actually a plus sign, can be made completely intuitively. Nevertheless, it is very important to do it fast in order to get a good solving time. After a week practice, you should be able to get to at most 10 seconds. A solution to the cross can always be found in 8 moves or less. I recommend starting with the same color every time. Most people prefer white, because it stands out. Now the real speedcubers make that cross on the bottom, which seems a little weird, but it helps in looking ahead to the second layer.

You actually only need four simple algoritms:

- put the front-bottom sticker on top-front

moves will appear here

- put the front-top sticker on top-front

moves will appear here

- put the front-right sticker on top-front

moves will appear here

- put the front-left sticker on top-front

moves will appear here

This looks like one of the best tutorials. Thank you, I’m being trying to learn to complete this thing seriously for a week and haven’t had much luck finding a tutorial where it is explained intelligently.

Hi,

Thanks for this tutorial. I just bought my first Rubik’s cube yesterday and I started searching the web for tutorials. This is by far the best I have found.

Good job!
