i was trying for many years to solve the rubik's cube. now i've made tons of progress!
From the beginners method on Ryan Heise's speedcubing site, i made it from the cross to solving the first layer, then the middle! I'm now on the last layer! Hopefully I shall be able to solve the whole thing by tomorrow.
Last layer requires memorization of some algorithms (which I memmed some of them, yeah) including the bottom face cross and orientation/permutation of edges and corners.
