Information and Help

If the webpage doesn't give you a solution, there maybe a few positions which cause the algorithm to bust.

Some few cases (currently 12235 in 3066812 tries) takes too long to solve and will timeout.

To get your cube back to original from any error, just give it a few more random turns and try again.

Computer Programming Information

I am looking into adding a 4x4x4 solver to this site but it is slow going. 4x4x4's are difficult cause they don't have a constant middle cube to reference and thus are hard to make instructions for that are as intuitive as the 3x3x3.

I get a lot of emails asking about the algorithm I use for this website. I used to just direct you to wrongway.org where there was a lot of good source code. Eric Dietz, was that site's owner but passed away in 2013 and the site is now down. I was able to pull the information from the Wayback machine.

I am going to add links and store the files on my server so that the source code is still available for you to experiment with.
