HOW TO: Rubik's Cube Part 5 FINAL (PLL)

Finally! Last part is here. After this, you can now solve a Rubik's Cube! :)

Permutation of the Last Layer (PLL) part is still very easy. You just need to memorize two algorithms! Here's a little surprise for you, one of them is Fish (or Fish')! The other one is called the corner swap. What it does is swap corners.

When doing PLL, the first thing we need to solve is the corners. What you need first to find is if there is a where were there are two corners of the same color.
After finding one, face that side of the cube, rotate the cube so that you are facing the left adjacent side, then do a corner swap.

Corner Swap: R U' L' U R' U' L

What if you didn't find one? Just do a corner swap anywhere. If you do it right, it will lead you back to a Fish'. To be faster, just ditch the L because Fish' starts with an L'. Less moves, faster time.

After all the corners are in place, there can be two possible outcomes. We'll first tackle the the easier one.
Notice that there is a face completely solved already. Face that side, then rotate the cube 180 degrees. What you need to do then is look for the edge piece missing. If it is on the left side, do a Fish' since Fish' starts with L'. If it is on the right side, do a Fish since Fish starts with R. The key here is to understand the patterns so that you can easily memorize.

Green is on the right.                 Green is on the left.

Fish works here.                       Fish' works here.

Again, what if there is no complete side? Easy. Do fish anywhere. It shall bring you to the algorithms above.

Any fish. All kinds of fish.

That is all what you need to know about solving a Rubik's Cube! Easy, huh? With simple and easy to memorize algorithms, you can now solve a Rubik's Cube!
