Step six: positions of yellow corners

Finally – we are solving the last four corner cubes on the top of the Rubik’s cube. For the beginning, let us have a look if their colours are matched to the sides of their corners. The orientation of these colours is not important at the moment!

Taking a look into the colours and position of the yellow corners Rubik's cube
taking a look at the yellow corners from all sides

In this example, only one of the cubes is matched to the colours of the adjacent sides.
We place the Rubik’s cube in such a way that the correctly-positioned cube is on the front right side (as shown in the example photo). The other cubes will reach their correct positions with the following rotations.

Pay attention to the next photo and to the notes:

  • Our example for positioning had only one cycle of repeating the algorithm, in practice it often happens that we need another one.
  • The front upper right cube is not part of these rotations.
  • It may happen in the starting position that none of the corner cubes is correctly positioned, which means that the first algorithm will be for the positioning of the first cube to match the colour with the sides.

It may also happen that all of the four corner cubes at the starting positions are already put on their correct position, in which case you will skip this step...
