There must have been an accidental turning of corners. Now, I do not know how to turn corners, so that the cube is solvable again.

The red and blue edges are the only misaligned pieces.

The cube is not solvable normally from this position. A piece must have popped at some point and been replaced incorrectly. The fastest way to fix it from here is probably just to pop them again.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, but which pieces do I need to pop to get it solvable again? $\endgroup$ Jun 19, 2019 at 21:13

    $\begingroup$ Pop the two ones you specified and switch them around. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Duck: How could this be done? I was only able to turn edges. $\endgroup$ Jun 19, 2019 at 21:16

    $\begingroup$ Twist the top layer by 45° and pop out the red-white-blue corner piece. The two misaligned pieces should then slide out so they can be repositioned. $\endgroup$ Jun 19, 2019 at 22:55
  • $\begingroup$ Depending on the cube, it may be easiest to pop edge pieces by turning the face 45 degrees and twisting the edge piece itself by 90 degrees. $\endgroup$
