Trim Enabler issues

For some people who are getting “Trim is enabled, but not working” message under 10.7.4 or Mountain Lion, I am working on a fix, it doesnt seem to be anything else then a hiccup that occurs for a few users with the slider element. Will probably release an update next week or so.

    Looking forward to that release. Thanks so much for your work!!!

    By the way, real IMPORTANT question, when the patch is ready, do I need to re-install my Mountain Lion or enabling TRIM then will take care of the already deleted data???

    Al the best

    Seems to be more than a hiccup as trim support is showing as not enabled in system information. Looking forward to your update. Cheers.

    HI
    I HAVE AN INTEL 320 SERIES SSD IN MY INTEL CORE DUO 2008 2.6GHZ MACBOOK PRO. WHEN I TRY TO ENABLE TRIM SUPPORT USING YOUR APP IT DOESN’T WORK.

    WHEN I TRY THE PATCH MANUALLY IN TERMINAL I GET THE FOLLOWING ERROR WHEN I TRY TO CLEAR THE 1ST CACHE WITH “SUDO KEXTCACHE -SYSTEM-PRELINKED-KERNEL”

    ERROR IS: “KERNEL FILE /MACH_KERNEL DOES NOT CONTAIN REQUESTED ARCH: I386″

    IN SYSTEM INFORMATION AFTER REBOOT IT SAYS TRIM SUPPORT – NO.

    ANY IDEA HOW I CAN GET TRIM SUPPORT ENABLED?

    MANY THANKS,
    SIMON

    Hi, Simon

    Try to use “TRIM Enabler 1.0″. As you’re most certainly on 10.6.8 32-bit (since you’re processor isn’t supported by Lion) you can’t use the newer versions of “TRIM Enabler”, which just binpatches an existing kernel extension (as the extension on Snow Leopard differs clearly from the ones used in 10.7.x/10.8). Instead, use the older version which overwrites your existing extensions with a pre-patched one.

    Regards,

    Adam
