Trim Enabler Beta 5

Trim Enabler Beta 5
January 16, 2012 Oskar

So I finally got a couple of hours to work on Trim Enabler, and the result is Beta 5.

I have rewritten alot of the code from scratch because it was bad design, and I have used some tricks I learned while making Kext Drop.

Beta 5 features are:

  • Much faster at patching then previous versions
  • No longer need to use an Update-button or restart app to see changes
  • Better status messages
  • Should have fixed alot of crashes some experienced
  • Should properly report SSD name or if you have many, the amount of SSD’s.
  • If people can test and confirm this version works well (especially you who experienced crasches with b4) I will conclude testing and release it as final 2.0 version.

      Do I need to apply the Patch again, if I came from Beta 4?

    2. Cindori 8 years ago

      No, if it’s done it’s done. New versions won’t improve the patch, just the process of patching and using Trim Enabler.

      What about publishing the actual app code? in github perhaps?

      Works 🙂 with 3 SSDs. No Crash – pure fun.

      Beta5 actually picks up my Crucial M4 SSD in my Mac Pro (2,1 8 core). Beta4 just used to crash on the Mac Pro.

      But Beta4 would work perfectly fine on a MacBook Pro with a Crucial M4 in it so it was odd.

      I had patched on the MacBook Pro and used Kext Drop to put the extension on the Mac Pro. That worked fine.

      Now with Beta5 that’s history and it works on the Mac Pro too 🙂

      The SMART Screen has quite a few ? on it. But that’s no biggie.


      Open sourcing the app and putting it on GitHub would be a good idea if you’re willing to do that as other people could contribute code to the project and help out with adding more SSD Model information to it for the wider community.

      With beta 4 it works well the dialog willshow but with this version beta 5 i get a error message like below.

      I have osx 10.6.8 running and boot with ssd Vertex 2 and the second disk is a WD HD with the Photo data.

      The beta 4 doesn’t display the SSD but the HDD, but in the system ssd trim is enabled.

      Still no joy. Just crashes on startup. Let me know if you’d like the crash log. 2008 MacPro with OCZ Vertex Plus 120GB drive.

      Samsung 830 reports very nice.

      On my 2009 Mac Pro with a Samsung 830 SSD enabling trim works just fine but only the Hours Powered On and Cycle Count show up under Statistics. All the Information is there except for Model Family. Thanks!

      The download link for Beta 5 doesn’t work. Any mirror available?

    12. Cindori 8 years ago

      Trim Enabler is no longer in beta. Please select it under the Software menu in the site header.

      When I click on the link for the beta 5 version from the Trim Enabler Beta 5 page, I get a 404 error. Is there an updated link?

      My brother recommended I might like this blog. He was entirely right.
      This post truly made my day. You can not imagine just how much time I
      had spent for this information! Thanks!
