How To: Enable TRIM On Any SSD In Snow Leopard

The developer preview of OS X Lion brought many exciting things, among them the long-awaited TRIM support for SSD’s. Now, enterprising hackers have found a way to enable the support on any Mac running OS X 10.6.7.

Oskar Groth, also known as Cindori, has built a script and a GUI that will allow you to enable TRIM on and SSD in 10.6.7. The utility he has released is called TRIM enabler, is simple to use, and has been shown to be successful.

You can download it here, but remember: use at your own risk.

    Also, this is a great development for those of us looking to speed up some of our aging systems. Thank you, Groth!
