First 2 Layers
You must solve the cross first. It can be done in 6 moves or less ~82% of the time and ≤7 moves 99.95% of the time These are just optimal example solves; F2L should be solved intuitively.

Easy Cases

(1-4)

U (R U' R')

Use (F R' F' R) if no U face edges are
oriented properly on final slot

y' (R' U' R)

Note – this image is green and red
because no cube rotation is required
