# Step 6

#### Beginner

So far we have the top edges twisted right, and the top corners placed right. The next step is twisting the corners right. This can be done using only the one simple move sequence below. I call it Sune™. It twists three of the four top corners. It also moves top edges, but we don't care about that yet.

The two animations shows both "mirrored" versions of Sune™. As you can see they're the same moves, just "mirrored". You need both. Note the big X. That is the target sticker of the Sune™ (explained below).

Step 6 can always be done with 2 Sunes or less. You do need to learn Sune™ to use this method.

To talk about how to use it we have to define target of a Sune™. In words, the target of a Sune™ is the corner sticker on the opposite side from the first turn, on the side of the corner moving up. But it's easier to see from the examples. Just look for where the black X's are in relation to the first move. The pattern is easy to see.

Once you understand targets, you only have these simple rules to keep in mind (assuming a red top layer):

Rule 0: With no correct corners, target one of the four red stickers. After the Sune™, there will be one correct corner. Use Rule 1 to solve it.

The black X is the target for the shown Sune™. The white X's are the other possible targets.

Rule 1: With one correct corner, target as shown in the beginner section. This solves the corners and completes step 6!

Rule 2: With two correct corners, target one of the two non red stickers of a twisted corner. After the Sune™, there will be one correct corner. Use Rule 1 to solve it.

The black X is the target for the shown Sune™. The white X's are the other possible targets.

Rule 3: Three correct corners is impossible

Rule 4: Four correct corners is already solved.

#### Intermediate

At left: Doing Sune™ backwards (AntiSune) twists corners the same way as Sune™, but moves the edges differently. Note the target! You can hit a target with either a Sune™ or an AntiSune, and often you can skip step 7 by choosing right.

The middle sequence is a double Sune™, and the right is a Bruno™, and they're simple and fast for those corner looks.
