The Rubik's cube

Doing the middle layer

The first layer is solved and you are still on track to solve the complete cube. Nice job and keep going ! Now you will get all the necessary instructions on how to solve the middle layer.

Now you want to solve the middle layer which is equivalent to positioning all the remaining edge cubies without a yellow face, in the correct place.
