First Layer

1.
Solve the cross : place in their correct position the fouredge pieces that contain white.

Solve the cross : place in their correct position the four edge pieces that contain white. You should be able to do this by yourself without needing algorithms.All four edge pieces can be placed in a maximum of 8 moves (5 or 6 in general).
2. Place the cross at the bottom.
3. Solve the four corners of the first layer, one by one. At theend of this step, the first layer should be complete, with a solid color (in this case, white) at the bottom. You should also be able to place the corners without needing algorithms. To get youstarted, here is an example of one corner being solved:

4. Your cube should now have the first layer complete and look like this (from the bottom side) :

Middle Layer

5. Place the four edges of the middle layer, one by one. Thoseedge pieces are the ones that do not contain yellow in our example. You need to know only one algorithm to solve the middle layer. The second algorithm is symmetrical to the first.
* If theedge piece is located in the last layer :
| | | | | | | | | (1.a) |
| | | | | | | | | (1.b)
symmetrical to (1.a) |
* If the edge piece is in the middle layer but inthe wrong place or with the wrong orientation, simply use the same algorithm to place any other edge piece in its position. Your edge piece will then be in the last layer, and you just have to usethe algorithm again to position it properly in the middle layer.
6. Your cube should now have the first two layers complete and look like this (from the bottom side) :
