2x2x2 Rubik's Cube Speedcubing Method

Have you ever seen a 2x2x2 Rubik's Cube? Do you want to know how to solve it? (in less than 5 seconds?) You can use 3x3x3 algorithms, but this is the 2x2x2 method. It's called simplified Ortega method. There are only 12 algorithms to remember, and, with this method, if fully mastered, you can solve the cube in 5 seconds or less. But I'm too lazy to master it, I'm contented with my 8-second personal best..

Step One: Assemble the first face (it is not necessary to build one layer, just make one of the faces of the cube displays a solid color. I like white.) Then turn the cube upside-down.

Step Two: Use one of the Fridrich's OLL (Orient Last Layer) algorithms to assemble the opposite side. (blue or yellow. In Rubik's original brand cube, it's blue)

Step Three: Use one of the Permute Both Layers algorithms to permute the pieces.

If you follow these steps and your cube is now solved, "Congratulations". Tell me if there are errors or something. bye.
