Hi, Donovan with Lubix Cube here.

By request, here is a complete 5 part tutorial teaching you the basics of the Roux method I use to solve the Rubik's cube.

Roux FTW!

I break down each step using partially stickered cubes to highlight the moves on each step. I chose to do this to make it easier for you to see what each step accomplishes without the distractions of all the pieces on the cube. All the videos are first person perspective, so you see exactly what I see during a solve.

I give several example cases for each step and cover many situations you are likely to see while solving a cube using Roux.

This should be very helpful on learning Roux, even if it is your first method for solving the cube. However knowing a few algorithms like the Sune, and J Perm are helpful in solving with this method, and should be learned first. (UPDATED: ADDED IN PART 3)

My average and PB solves
AO5: 19.xx
AO12: 22.xx
Average of 100 = 24.xx
PB = 12.73

Video List:
Part 1:5 = (Left) 1st Block
Part 2:5 = (Right) 2nd Block
Part 3:5 = Corner Orientation (7 algs) Permutation (J and Y Perm)
Part 4:5 = Edge Orientation
Part 5:5 = Cycling Edges / Solved!

So grab your cube, sit down, and take some time to enjoy learning the Roux Method.

Thank you for watching, and I hope you enjoy my "Rouxtorial".
