It’s been a while since my last update, and I’ve been getting quite some emails so I just want to clarify some things
First, I am always happy to answer emails and if I somehow missed to do so it’s just because I direct all my mail to a single account and things get lost sometimes.
Second, I have not been very active on this blog or working on updating my apps, because I’ve been busy with university stuff and also a part time job as an iOS developer. In a way, these things are really great because I learn alot of new stuff and come up with great ideas to improve my apps.
Third, this website needs, and will get, a makeover. Not only design-wise, but also add and consolidate alot of information. It also needs a better system for discussion and questions. I’m working with a great webdesigner friend of mine to achieve this.
Finally, I also want to give a little FAQ about Trim Enabler, of some questions that have been asked alot in comments and through email:
Q: Do I need to start Trim Enabler on boot? What happens if I remove the app?
A: Trim Enabler patches a native OSX Trim driver, which works in the background even when the app is closed or removed. This patch is reset on system updates, so it might be a good idea to keep the app however.
Q: I can’t activate Trim, the slider bounces back to Off!
A: This is a bug that is kind of rare, but I have gathered reports and data necessary to fix it and I am planning on having this fixed for next update.
Q: My S.M.A.R.T data is showing wierd numbers! 1378912741 errors or powered hours!
A: The error count (and some other s.m.a.r.t stats) is tricky to get right for all drives, because some SSD list that value in decimals, some in hexadecimals. (and some don’t list the value at all). So the error can show in millions when it is not. You can see this issue in Windows s.m.a.r.t tools also. Don’t worry, your SSD is not about to catch fire. I am looking into better ways to list this data.
i have a new ssd samsung 840 pro 512GB in my macbook pro (2010). works very well. but the trim enabler says always:
” the patch is active but the trim is not working. perhaps your ssd does not support trim, or you need to reboot”
what can i do?
You have to reboot to take effect !
…also when you bring the Slide back to “Off”, to get effect.
you can controll status in System-Report (About tis Mac ff) under the SATA Section.
Can I use Trim Enabler with RAID-ed 2x Crucial C300 SSDs?
Both SSDs work in RAID-0 created with SoftRAID 4.5.1, Mac Pro 2009 2×2.26.
dont think so .
Raid 0 for SSDs ????
You really think, you need this
i thoink i read, that this is impossible for a Raid 0 yet…but im not shure.
But i think also: You dont ned this …….
It’s amazing for me to have a web page, which is helpful in favor of my experience. thanks admin
