Step 1: Solve the top side of the cube

Figure 1

Pick a middle-center piece to represent the first side of the cube solved (side 1 in the diagrams) and solve that side (make it a solid color).

Be sure to have correctly colored and matched edge and corner pieces, such that an evenly colored border exists around the side, as shown in Figure 1.

Hopefully you can accomplish Step 1 without any additional help. It's just a matter of moving pieces out of the way to insert desired pieces in the correct locations. Still, if you would like further help on this, please visit the Step 1 Detail page.
