Hi,

I couldn't find any videos on how to solve this puzzle online, so I decided to record my own. I made it in English, instead of Spanish, so it would appeal to a broader audience. You will therefore have to excuse the language mistakes.

You will also have to excuse the image cuts. I made it with a digital camera, which can only record in 30 second batches. And sorry for the camera angle in certain moments. This was my first tutorial video; I will get better with time (hopefully).

And after the disclaimer, here is the video:

Tutorial

You can also watch a complementary example solve, in which I apply the concepts explained in the tutorial video:

Example Solve


ALGORITHMS used:

Edge swap:
R' L R L'
L R' L' R


Corner turn:
(clockwise) R U R' U R U R' U
(counterclockwise) R U' R' U' R U' R' U'

Small edges flip:
R' L R L' - Turn puzzle - L R' L' R

Thanks for watching!
