Just recently, Apple started supporting TRIM in OS X Lion 10.7 Beta 1 build and also for Apple SSD’s in the new 2011 MacBook Pro’s with Snow Leopard 10.6.6 pre-loaded.
I came across this forum post on HardMac describing how to enable TRIM on third party SSD’s.
I followed the instructions and was able to get TRIM enabled for my 160GB Intel X25-M G2 SSD on my 2010 MacBook Pro. The post, however, is hard to follow, so I’ll do my best to explain how to enable TRIM on your own SSD.

Earlier today, Joshua Topolsky wrote: It seems likely that the device will land around April (perfectly timed with the 12-month product cycle Apple enjoys). And what about that device? From what we’ve been told, the thinner, sleeker tablet will sport a new screen technology that is akin to (though not the same as) the iPhone… Read more »
I’ve been on 4.1 for a while because I’ve been too lazy to update my iPhone 4 to iOS 4.2.1. I just got this SMS from AT&T a few minutes ago.. It seems like AT&T is tracking what firmware everyone is using on the iPhone and wants people to update. I’ve never gotten a message… Read more »
Twitter for Mac (aka Tweetie 2) was released with the Apple Mac App Store on January 6th, and notably, many, if not all, of the Twitter extensions that allowed you to post to Twitter using Tweetie’s compose window did not work anymore. I waited a few days to see if any updates would be posted,… Read more »
You finally updated OS X to 10.6.6, and the very first app you downloaded from the Mac App Store was no other than Twitter for Mac (aka Tweetie 2). Great, you love the app, but there’s a few things that would make your life better. Then, out of nowhere, MacHeist comes out and says there… Read more »
