Enable trim support on Apple and third party SSD’s
Authored by: Andrew J Freyer on Mar 29, '11 09:25:11AM

Before modifying, both drives indicated that TRIM was not enabled.

I do not think that this is merely an SSD reporting patch. Perhaps anecdotal evidence is all we're going to have in this particular circumstance.

That's what confuses me. I'm unclear on why there would be no way of testing TRIM at the disk level.

One guy claims to have checked via using a Ubuntu CD and multiple boots:

But I'd love it if someone who knew how to directly check the sectors while booted into OS X would test the thing. It's got to be possible to check the disk sectors under OS X, and I don't fully trust the guy's experiment. (At a minimum, he should have tried the same test with the regular kernel extension to see if he got the opposite result.)

I've been keeping my SSD with 50% free space specifically because I knew TRIM was coming sometime in the future, and I'd love to fill that SSD up if someone could definitely verify that this was really working.
