    For those who had already patch 10.6.8 with previous version of Trim Enabler. Could they re-patch with this version or should they roll back to unpatched 10.6.8 before ?

    Hello, is TRIM enabler necessary for a Crucial M4 128 Go on 10.6.8 ? I’m new to this SSD thingy :-)

    So if I read this right my Corsair F60 has internal garbage collection and doesn’t need TRIM?

    Garbage Collection (GC) is no replacement for TRIM; this is a huge error in reasoning most people are doing. GC and TRIM are two things built to work together, not two things that are thought to replace each other.

    A SSD with GC will optimize data distribution in such a way, that you can achieve optimal read and write performance at all times. Therefor the SSD needs to know which sectors are currently in use and which ones are not and that’s where TRIM enters the game.

    When you delete a file, the file data is not really deleted, only the directory entry is deleted; the SSD cannot know that the old file data is now obsolete, since an SSD cannot have understanding of every file system in existence (FAT16/32, NTFS, HFS+, EXT2/3/4, XFS, ZFS, etc.), the OS must tell the SSD that a certain sector is not in use any longer (and the SSD can discard all data within this sector, if it feel like it).

    Only when the SSD knows that certain sectors are unused, it can rearrange data in the GC process for optimal performance. Otherwise it must consider all sectors where any data has been written to as “in use”, even if those data belongs to files you have deleted months ago.

    thanks a lot!!! just installed this on 10.6.8 and TRIM Support in System Profiler says yes, details below:

    13″ MacBook Pro, late 2009 (MacBook Pro 5.5)
    120GB OCZ Vertex2 SSD, rev. 1.29

    It activated TRIM on Late 2009 Imac, i5, Intel 320 120GB SSD.

    Thanks.

    My PLEXTOR PX-128M2S thanks you, and I thank you. I enjoy a screaming fast laptop.

  14. Since I installed the patch on my Core 2 Duo MBP with a Mushkin Callisto Deluxe 240 GB, and since the patch was installed, my Dock consumes 100% of one processor constantly. Any words of wisdom anyone? I’ve tried rebooting, restarting the Dock, etc, nothing helps so far.

    I forgot to do the backup before patching, even if everything seems ok on a MBP 5,5 and a OCZ VORTEX2 180, i would like to understand what file was modified in order to keep it in a safe location (I can take it back from my timemachine)

    One file: /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext

    This is working on 10.7 Golden Master.
    Fuck’s sake, apple still not supporting 3rd party SSDs.

    On my 2009 Unibody MBP Core2 Duo (fitted with a Crucial RealSSD 300 256 GB) since applying the patch, my dock has gone to 100% CPU utilisation and has stopped responding to trackpad/mouse input.

    It looks like I will be restoring the file /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext from Time Machine to get things back to normal.

    Oh well…

    Worked fine on my imac 27/ lion GM + Real SSD C300

    My high dock CPU utilisation it turn out was due to a problem between the OS X 10.6.8 update and Parallels 6.0. See:

    Since patching Parallels my dock CPU utilisation has gone back to normal and everything so far appears to be fine with the TRIM enabler patch.

    Will we see a Trim Enabler for Lion soon? Is it okay to use Trim Enabler 1.2 till release?

    magnificent submit, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite experts of this sector don’t understand this. You must proceed your writing. I’m sure, you’ve a great readers’ base already!

  23. This is my first time pay a visit at here and i am truly happy to read
    everthing at one place.

    Hello, I just acquired a Crucial M500 and would like to install and run a version of Trim Enabler that’s compatible with OS 10.6.8.
    The link up there leads to a blank page!
    Could you please send me the link for download?

    That would be much appreciated, thanks!

    The steps with the short step height and deep step depth are constructed for short little legs and are probably
    best for your cat. Your pet can use it to sharpen her claws without destroying your furniture.
    Shipping rates are based on weight, and shipping costs for a piece of cat furniture made with cardboard posts
    will be considerably less than a comparable model with wooden posts.
