Solve Your Scrambled Pocket Cube

The 2×2×2 pocket cube has been completely analyzed; each configuration is at most 14 moves from start. If you do not have access to such a cube, concentrate on the corners of a standard cube, and try to ignore the centers and sides.

Use this form to enter the current configuration of your pocket cube. The form contains six text entry fields, one field for each face. The first field asks for the 4 colors that appear on the top face. Each color is indicated by a single letter. Use any letters you wish, but be consistent. Most people use initials (i.e. r=red, b=blue, g=green, etc). When entering the top face, start with the back row and proceed left to right, as though you were reading a printed page. The second field asks for the front face. Enter the colors of the top row first (left to right), then the bottom row. After you have entered all six faces, submit the form, and I will provide a minimal path back to start.

Enter top face, back row first:
Enter front face, top row first:
Enter right face, top row first:
Enter back face, top row first:
