UPDATED: see bottom
Still some stuff I need to work on, so still Beta
- Rewritten from AppleScript to 100% Objective-C
- Features new S.M.A.R.T tool to learn about your drive’s health
- New icon, courtesy of vegrafik
- No longer installs an old driver, instead patches your current*
*Previous Trim Enabler never was a longterm solution, although a label in the app said “Only for Snow Leopard” I made a claim on this blog that it would not be any problems to use it in Lion. Well as some users have pointed out, using an older driver could lead to slower speeds and I admit I did take the advice the wrong way and chose to ignore it. My apologies to those persons and the users for my ignorance and for taking so long to fix the issue.
- If you have patched in Lion with previous Trim Enabler (1.1 or 1.2, not the 2.0 Beta 1) then I suggest you proceed with following steps to update your driver to the latest version:
- Type in terminal: diskutil mount ‘Recovery HD’
- Open Recovery HD in Finder
- Navigate to BaseSystem.dmg (it is hidden, so you will need to set Finder to show hidden files), open/mount it
- Open BaseSystem in Finder, navigate to System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext
- Use Kexthelper app to install that kext back to your system
- Use Trim Enabler 2.0
- Slider button and status text does not update properly on patch/unpatch, that is why there is a Update button, press it 3 seconds after you have activated or deactivated the switch to properly update status
Should not be too hard to fix, but I am drowning in school work so that’s why I’m releasing it as Beta 2. It will also be useful to gather feedback for a final v.2.0 release, I can only test so much with one computer.
Should be compatible with Snow Leopard 10.6.8 or Lion.
Please report back with your experience.

Thanks! I will try it.
Working well with 10.7.2 and my 120GB Corsair Force 3 SSD. Thanks!
Works great with my Intel 120GB 320 Series drive and Macbook (Late 2006)
Does this matter which MacBook you have, or will it work on any?
1) How do I turn TrimEnabler 1.1 off or uninstall it?
2)Will Trim 2.0 just overwrite it or is there something else that needs to be done? I’m running a hackintosh with 10.6.8.
Thanks for your work!
1. The guide is in the post you just commented on.
2. Read the guide mentioned in 1.
The head of the post is about Lion. I can’t find a “guide” listed as a link up at the top, and the inline comments just don’t relate to 10.6.8. Trying to be a good boy here; not being snarky.
So, how do I turn off or disable v. 1.1?
I forgot it applied to Lion only, sry.
If you patched in 10.6.8 with 1.1 then you are fine. No need to repatch really. if you want to restore 100% original, the way isto reinstall 10.6.8 combo update
