How to solve a Rubik's cube - Step 5

Step 5.

In the end of this stage you should create 2 lower layers and one upper cross.

In the beginning of this stage the pieces of the upper cross should be in their place, but their colors can be turned incorrectly or

a) 2 neighboring pieces are turned incorrectly,
b) or 2 opposite pieces are turned incorrectly.

To turn the pieces, carry out the following:

R C' R C' R C' R C'

After these procedures, the cube will «break» but having done this one more time, everything will return to their places. Before doing this, locate the second "wrong" piece on the right face. Depending on the case, you should rotate upper face necessary amount of times to locate “wrong” piece on the right face.

In case a) rotate upper face one time
In case b) rotate upper face two times
