So I looked into this a little bit, what's odd is my cube can be scrambled and solved unlike cubes that were assembled or reassembled incorrectly, so they always get this situation. My cube is a standard moyu speed cube, the corners and edges cannot be flipped without breaking them off, I have not had to reassemble it yet. The cube has been manufactured correctly. enter image description here I only got this situation because I used basic algorithms. What's an algorithm for when 2 opposite top edges need to be swapped to solve?

  • $\begingroup$ I don't think this is possible??? I think you did something weird. $\endgroup$ – greenturtle3141 Apr 3 '18 at 18:44
  • $\begingroup$ I've seen people say that you can get this with basic algorithms. $\endgroup$ – Bryce Apr 3 '18 at 18:46
  • $\begingroup$ Both those people have somethong wrong with their cube where they can't solve it. I can scramble and solve it. EDIT: Though I did use that picture because it describes my situation. Yet all of the algorithms on that post just reset the lat layer. I want to know how to solve it from this state. $\endgroup$ – Bryce Apr 3 '18 at 18:49
  • $\begingroup$ It cannot be solved with normal moves only. If you cannot disassemble the edges/corners, what you could do to make it solvable is to rearrange the caps of the centres. $\endgroup$ – Jaap Scherphuis Apr 3 '18 at 18:52
  • $\begingroup$ I can solve it using normal moves, I've been solving it for the last 40 minutes now. I just needed reset the last layer with something like R U R' U R U2 R'. I just want to know how to solve it from this state, not by reseting layers. $\endgroup$ – Bryce Apr 3 '18 at 18:53
