๐Ÿ“” Dive into the Steps:

  1. Shape Transition: The initial phase in our "How to Solve a Square-1" guide involves achieving the cube form from varied shapes.
  2. Corner Orientation: Intuitive strategies to align corners. A misalignment by 1 during slices is crucial to retain the cube shape.
  3. Edge Orientation: Transform the top and bottom to display distinct yellow (or black) and white sections.
  4. Addressing Parity: For those attempting "How to Solve a Square-1" for the first time, this step aids in understanding potential parity challenges.
  5. Corner Permutation: Align every corner to its designated spot, navigating through 6 possible scenarios.
  6. Edge Permutation: Leverage the adj/adj edge algorithm. This step could lead to a fully solved puzzle or a final parity challenge.
  7. Celebrate Your "How to Solve a Square-1" Achievement! ๐Ÿฅณ Reflect on your accomplishment, aim for faster solve times, or delve deeper into the nuanced world of cubing.

A huge thank you to Tingman for providing the framework for "How to Solve a Square-1", making it comprehensible for cube enthusiasts everywhere.
