    Hi Ninja,

    These videos show what is pretty much considered to be the best beginner method:

    Or you can use this site to get it back to the original solution. Not good for learning, but good for returning to the start.

    http://www.wrongway.org/cube/solve.html

    If you want to know more, you can read up on the wikipedia entry:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubik's_Cube

    Here is the official site http://www.rubiks.com/ which has its own simple solution instructions http://www.rubiks.com/lvl4/commun/cbeclb/clbsol/cl... and the original solution booklet that comes with the standard cube; http://www.rubiks.com/World/~/media/Files/Solution...

    There is a beginners forum on the speed solving page that addresses many issues, like how and when to lube the cube for smooth operation. Take a look:

    Good luck!

    I use Dan Brown's method. It took me a little while but I can finally solve the Rubik's cube. He won a you tube award and is on Rubik's home page. Here is part 1 and part 2.

    Don't worry if its a little confusing at first, you'll get it after a little while.

    not really solve it....when I first bought it, it was already configured and showed it to my friend that I solved it.....he mixed it up and told me to solve it i went into my room and took the stickers off....that is the only way I have ever solved a rubiks cube xD

    its all about the algorithm ... to solve it, you'll have to not ruin the side you finished ... go on youtube, there's a bunch of videos that show you step-by-step each algorithm

    you solve it by getting one side, and then doing row by row

    not side by side

    i would watch a video on youtube, it's really easy once you get used to the steps
