How to solve a Rubik's cube 6x6 - Step 2

Step 2.

At the beginning of this stage, must be assemble the middles of the cube.

At the end of the stage You should have the same cubes connected on the ribs (4 pieces), and their location is not important.

To perform this step, You need to combine among themselves the same cubes. The location of the centers at this stage is not important, the main thing is to combine the same edge cubes among themselves, so the centers in the pictures are not painted over, so as not to distract attention from the main thing, but it is worth remembering that the centers at this stage have already been assembled, and disassemble they should not. Place identical cubes opposite each other, as shown in the figure. The main thing here is to understand the principle and You will not need any memorization of algorithms. During this step, you will have a moment when You need to put a pair of different cubes in place of a pair of identical cubes. Depending on how You have the same cubes and where a pair of different cubes are, there may be the following situations

When all the same cube are combined, go to the next step
