Hi Guy,

 

I'm wondering if many users tried out SSD on lion? I read up topics in internet that lion do support TRIM but, only on APPLE SSD.

Hence i tried patching the Kext to remove the string "APPLE SSD" to Zero.

But it doesn't seems to work for my SSD (ADATA S510), maybe this model is too old.

Anyone can share your experience?

 

TY

You can use trim enabler to enable 3th. party SSDTrim support on Lion (your ssd needs to support TRIM offcourse)

 

Download from: http://team.osxlatit...M%20Enabler.zip

 

I tried the Trim enabler 2.0 too, but no avail. The spec of my SSD ADATA S510 showed that it do support trim.

I think i need to run other apps to dig detail spec of this ssd :/

I dont think machine support is needed for TRIM, just HD and OS.. atleast thats how i understand the specification.. try and look up your HD model number and have a look at the vendor spec

Hi Leon, i just get hold of another SSD (Plextor PX-128M2P) installed lion on this D620 (EDP2.2) but still having same results. I guess the OS can't detect the SSD. :/

I wonder is there anything i went wrong on lion installation ?huh.gif

 

Any D620 Lion on SSD user out there ??

Hi Leon,

Yes, i have tried the Trim Enabler 1.2 and 2.0Beta too. 100% sure the both SSD (Plextor PX-128M2P and ADATA S510) support TRIM.

The below is the diskutil info /dev/disk0 on my SSD, there should be one more row mention " Solid Sate: Yes / NO " and it's missing from my Lion, hence maybe some drivers are missing or it can't detect my SSD due to compatible issue sad.gif
