# What is the fastest time to solve a 2×2 problem?

## Introduction

Ever wonder how fast you can solve a 2×2 cube in 2 seconds? Although it’s not difficult as you might imagine, it does take practice. This article will explain how to solve a 2×2, and give you some tips to help you get faster.

There are many ways to solve 2×2 problems, but only one method is most efficient.

The Fridrich method is the most efficient, as it uses three solutions in one.

It takes 4 moves to solve a 2×2 puzzle. However, you must have perfect parity (0 and 1).

### Fridrich is the method that’s used to speed-solve competitions.

The Fridrich method is the method that speed solves competitions. It was created by Jessica Fridrich, and is commonly called “Fridrich 3-2-1”.

This method works by placing two corner pieces (the ones that are opposite each other) on their sides. Next, place one face-to–face and one edge–to–edge. Then add another pair (which would be different from the first two), and then you’re done. You will now have a cube that has one corner solved. This can be solved with any number of moves.

This method is very similar to the Fridrich technique for speed solving 3×3 problems, except that you must first solve it without using a cross.

The best way to solve 2×2 problems in speedCube is with the Fridrich method. The method is also similar to solving a 3×3 in speedCube, except that you must first solve it without using a cross!

Let’s be clear: When someone claims that they solved their cube in less than five minutes, it’s not necessarily about solving a particular puzzle or even all four edges. They are simply saying, “I solved my cube.” However, most people use F2L and F4L algorithms by hand. We’ll concentrate on these methods.

If you don’t have a cube solving algorithm, or even if it is, now is a great time to learn about Speedcubers. We love solving puzzles, and want to share our passion with everyone else! Those who love puzzles will also enjoy them!

There are two methods to solve each of the four edges once you have the cross solved. The Rippled Square is the first algorithm for the front right edge.

The second algorithm is used for the front left edge and is called a Mirror Square or Mirror-Image Cross.

The third algorithm, which is for the back left edge, is called an Inverted Square or Inversion Cross.

### Four more algorithms can be used to solve the entire cube.

There are four additional algorithms that can solve the entire cube, as well as four algorithms for each one of its four edges. Feliks Zemdegs, an Australian cuber, was the fastest to solve a 2×2 in October 2018. (full video below).

Feliks Zemdegs, an Australian cuber, was the fastest to complete a 2×2 in October 2018.

Feliks Zemdegs holds the current world record. He solved a 2×2 in 0.96 secs on October 26th 2018. He also holds a record of 1 second for 2 moves per second, and he was only 20 at the time.

This puzzle is solved by Zemdegs using a method that involves him memorizing his last move, then reading aloud what he would do if he had more patience. It can take as long as 20 minutes depending on how fast your brain works and how patient you are.

### He holds the record for a fastest average time at 1 Second Flat.

Paul Dekker holds the record for solving a 2×2 in 0.96 secs – the fastest average time to solve any cubist problem anywhere on YouTube.

A 2by2 Rubik’s cube can be solved in 1 second flat. 1 second is the time it takes for each column and row to complete their moves separately. Samuel Kasky, from Brazil (1 second), was followed by Anthony Nettles, from England (1.02 seconds). This barrier has been broken by five people: Chris Sheppard twice, Samuel Kasky twice, Ryan Weber twice, and Jason Klassen once.

### If you are familiar with the moves and algorithms, it is not difficult to speed-solve a 2×2 cube.

First, you need to learn how to solve it with no cross. This is known as an edge piece. Although it is easy to do, it can be difficult. You’ll then need to understand how the edges fit together so they don’t slip around when you rotate them. There are four more algorithms that we need to solve. These last four will allow us to complete the cube’s 22 pieces. You can then solve the spinner cube and impress your friends by solving it.

### Conclusion:

It is not possible to say how many moves are required to solve a 2×2 puzzle. There are multiple algorithms that can help. The average number of moves required to solve a 2×2 is 40. A 2×2 takes approximately 10 seconds to complete. However, this time can vary depending on who is doing it.
