When completely confident with all of the algorithms shown below you should be at least sub 5 maybe even quicker. Please Note: All images used in this guide are generic pictures of 2x2 Speed Cubes and may not be genuine Rubik's brand cubes. All images are for illustrational and educational purposes only. In step 1 we are going to solve the white face on the bottom layer of our 2x2. In step 2 we are going to orientate the top layer of our 2x2. In step 3 we are going to permute both the top and bottom layers of our 2x2 at the same time.
If you are reading this tutorial on solving your 2x2 with the Ortega method I can only assume that you have at least basic knowledge of solving the 2x2 and are confident using the LBL layer by layer method. I will not be going through how to solve the first layer as this is something you should be used to if you are trying to learn a fairly advanced method.
In step 2 of the 2x2 Ortega method we bring all of the yellows to the top layer you may have started with a different side of the cube, in which case you might not be solving the yellow face here, but in our example we are solving the yellows.
Once all of the yellows are on the top we can move on to step 3. In step 3 of the Ortega method we permute both of the layers at the same time thus solving the 2x2 cube. This may take a little bit of time to learn but rest assured, once you are confident in finding and performing the correct algorithm you will be well on your way to sub 5. R2 F2 R2.

ADVANCED 2x2 Ortega Method
The Ortega Method , also known as the Varasano Method , is a 2x2 and 3x3 speedsolving method. If used to solve a 3x3 shape modification , extra algorithms may have to be used. It is named after Victor Ortega , and is mostly popular today for being an intermediate 2x2 solving method. Victor Ortega is often credited for creating the method. While it is true that Victor popularized the method, he cannot be said to have created it, similar to the naming dispute with the CFOP method.
This tutorial is for cubers who already know the basic 2x2 tutorial. There will be many algorithms to remember! Think Cubes. Happy Cubing! Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
