Today, Trim Enabler appeared at the front page of my favorite tech-blog, Gizmodo:
What better way to celebrate this then pushing a new update?
This new version of Trim Enabler (2.1) enables you to select any of your disk, be it SSD or hard drive, in the S.M.A.R.T view.
You can update your Trim Enabler by selecting Trim Enabler->Look for updates… or download it fresh from the page: Trim Enabler.
Remember, if you are going to patch for Trim, you have to take the .app out of the DMG first!
Nice, thanks for the update. SMART info is finally working, however when I select my SSD from the list it shows SMART data from my HDD and vice versa (I have iMac 27″ with two drives: SSD + normal HD). Everything works but this is a bit confusing.
Is there any changelog? Or was just the S.M.A.R.T. part updated?
I had to remove Trim Enabler 2.0 as I got every few minutes a few seconds of freeze on my mid-2011 iMac27…
I can confirm that version 2.1 is working for my OCZ Agility 3, 240GB SSD installed in my MBP 13″ 2011 late model, 2.4Ghz. Thanks for the App!

The application won’t launch on a Core Duo (first generation MBP running latest Snow Leopard). It says unsupported architecture… Is it compiled for 64bit?
Just saw on another blog post that it required 64 bit… You should probably mention that (and which versions of OS X you support) somewhere on the Trim Enabler page.

Trim Enabler 2.0 and later is mainly for Lion use. Since Core Duo Macs won’t run Lion, I skipped compiling for 32-bit as it also made developing easier since I could benefit from Objective-C ARC.
If you are on 10.6.7 or 10.6.8, you can look up Trim Enabler 1.0. It installs a pre-patched driver instead of patching your driver on the fly, like 2.0 does. It should work fine for Snow Leopard.
Where can I download Trim Enabler 1.0? I need the 32-bit build for an original Core Duo.
First off, thanks for working on this program to help make up for the manufacturers of the hardware…they should have hired you!
Ok, so I see mention about compatibility with Core Duo Macs, and that 1.0 “should work.”
I have a Core “2″ Duo, running 10.6.8., but don’t want to risk any trouble for ~10% extra speed. I can deal with a bit slower, just not worth it to cause who knows what issues. Isn’t the latest version 2.1 or whatever the only version that’s out of Beta? I’m afraid!
(Also thought that 10.6.8 COULD upgrade to Lion, just seems to slow them down, & remove 32bit support. Maybe the difference is the core 2 part?)
Mid 2009 MBP; Samsung 830 256gb SSD; SL10.6.8
Also, for the other person looking for 1.0, this looks like it here:
Can’t download 1.0 for a 32bit core duo mac. Link is dead. Could it be made available here as an alternate download?
