    Enable TRIM on 10.10 DP1

    Version 1.0


    First make a backup of the original kext then copy the extracted in /System/Library/Extensions/ and launch this command with terminal sudo touch /System/Library/Extensionssudo kextcache -u If it don't create the new kernelcache launch this from terminal (from Yosemite, also single mode is supported) kextkache -system-prelinked-kernel If you have trouble try this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298507-enable-trim-on-non-apple-ssd/
  2. Dear all, I have successfully installed Yosemite (14A389) on H87n-wifi using ##### and #####, but after installing Trim Enabler, things when wrong. I had to start Trim Enabler twice (and reboot) in order to enable trim in the System Information. After this, every time I start the machine from cold start, it is crashing just after displaying the desktop window (mouse stuck, keyboard too, glitches on screen). I then restart the machine, which goes into a reboot loop without displaying anything (power led on, activity led on, power reset,...). Then, I switch the power off for a few seconds, and after restating the machine, I have to enter bios, exit (with or without making changes) and then it is starting fine, loading the OS, and I can use it for hours w/o problems. If I restart the machine, the problem does not come back (until I switch power off). I have made a usb installer with Yosemite using Clover as a bootloader. I installed Clover in EFI and used Clover Configurator to setup the USB as it should for my system but the result is the same. if I do a Coldstart. Clover is loading, and everything is fine until it has to load the desktop (where it crash without any errors in logs), the rest is the same has with Chameleon. Bios rev F8 (have also try F7). AHCI enable XMS profile 1 Fast boot enabled Virtualization enabled. GPU enabled with 1.024 Mb Does anyone have the same kind of problems?

    Version 1


    Kext to activate trim. No terminal command No patch in the config.plist Just put the kext in EFI / Clover / Kexts / Other Thanks to PMHeart for pointing out the article, on which I have based, to do this kext. https://www.idelta.info/archives/how-os-x-open-the-gate-for-trim-on-3rd-party-ssd/
  4. La toute première bêta du nouvel OS X d'Apple nommé El Capitan apporte de nouvelles fonctionnalités mais aussi de nouvelles protections. Des protections qui peuvent poser quelques problèmes aux petits bidouilleurs de la communauté Hackint0sh mais pas seulement. System Integrity Protection (alias rootless) Même si cela n'avait pas été annoncé officiellement lors du keynote, Apple a bel-et-bien implémenté une nouvelle protection nommée Rootless. Sa ligne de code a même été repérée dans le système par un ingénieur en sécurité Pedro Vilaça. com.apple.xpc.launchd.rootless.plist. Même si cette protection a encore ses inconnues, il semblerait que sa fonction principale soit d'empêcher la modification des fichiers systèmes. Trim Malgré cela, Apple semble avoir laisser une porte ouverte en laissant accès à une commande en ligne nommée trimforce, qui permet d'activer la fonction TRIM sur n'importe quel SSD. La technique semble être toute simple... après avoir démarré sur la partition de restauration, il faut utiliser l'utilitaire Security Configuration afin de désactiver la nouvelle protection System Integrity Protection (alias rootless). Une fois ceci fait, il faut passer la commande sudo trimforce enable. Même si cela semble bien fonctionner, Apple tient tout de même à mettre en garde quant à son utilisation : Cet outil force l’activation du TRIM sur tous les volumes appropriés, quand bien même l’intégrité de leurs données lors de l’utilisation de cette fonction n’aurait pas été éprouvée. En utilisant cet outil pour activer le TRIM, vous reconnaissez qu’Apple n’est pas responsable des conséquences, [comme] une corruption ou une perte de données.
  5. In this video I first show the boot time of my system running on an OCZ Vertex 3 SSD APFS formatted and with TRIM enabled. As you can see the boot has a long pause at these "FIPSPOST_USER" stuff. The solution that always worked for me is to create a time machine backup and restore to disk. As you can see after the restoring that long pause is drastically reduced. The initial boot time is 45 seconds circa, after restoring is down to 22 seconds. TRIM is still enabled and disk is APFS.

    TRIM Enabler

    Version 1.3 (7)


    This is a free app that helps you in patching the IOAHCIBlockStorage without use of the terminal and activate the TRIM support on your system. It will works on Yosemite, Mavericks, Mountain Lion and Lion. No suppport for Snow Leopard because I think that there aren't a lot of people that use SSD and because some functionalities of the app are present only in 10.7+. If you want Snow Leopard the best way it patch manually the kext. Video demostration: If you want to help me in translation you can translate this file and send it back to me in private message. Thanks for donations to: hustenbold * This application isn't affiliated with the commercial application "TRIM Enabler" by cindori.org/software/trimenabler. My application is FREE and is a simply patcher (with help in rebuild kernelcache and system caches). If you have paid for this app ask money back! *
  7. Hello everybody! After several times trying to install OS X Yosemite on my Samsung SSD 840 evo, I finally figured out how solve a problem that many people are having: The system UI freezes, out of the blue! Requirements: 1- OS X 10.10.4+ 2- Samsung SSD (830 or newer) 3- A CD or Pendrive. WARNING: DON'T FOLLOW THIS TUTORIAL IF YOU AREN'T FACING ANY ISSUE WITH YOUR SSD! WARNING 2: WHEN FLASHING A FIRMWARE ON YOUR SSD, YOU NEED TO KEEP IN YOUR MIND THAT YOU CAN MESS YOUR SSD UP! WARNING 3: I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY IF YOUR COMPUTER BLOWS UP, OR ANYTHING ELSE! HOW TO: First step: Do a clean installation, and configure all your hardware, but DON'T enable trim! Second step: This step is optional, but very recommended. We are going to update our ssd firmware with the latest from samsung, that is already modified for MAC. This step only works on 830, 840, 840 Pro & 840 Evo; since only these devices have a firmware update on samsung's website. So, go to samsung's download site, and scroll down until you see the MAC download session. Then download the firmware for your ssd model, and save somewhere. Now open disk utility, select your pendrive/CD and restore the iso to your device. OK, now restart your computer and then boot into the device you restored. (Legacy mode, so, enable CSM) Follow all the DOS steps, and when it finish, restart your pc. Third step: Now open your terminal, and paste this command: $ sudo trimforce enable Restart your pc again, and look into About This Mac > System Report > SATA/SATA Express Then, select your ssd and look the description if trim is enabled. Now, it should work with any problem! Any question, just ask!
  8. The latest issue with APFS comes in the form of introducing an extra 15 seconds of booting time when Trim is enabled. It is currently believed that the filesystem is performing a routine Trim-related cleanup process during this time, which is causing boot times to increase for users who want their SSD’s to benefit from Trim. Trim is an important feature for Solid State Drive performance and longevity. Some users who want to enable Trim on High Sierra may notice an increase in boot time for now. I am convinced this is an unintentional bug in APFS from Apple’s side that should be fixed in an upcoming version of High Sierra.
  9. Hello All, I was given an Asus Eeepc 901 netbook recently. So i thought why not install lion on it! I know the processor is N270 which is 32 bit and lion don't support 32 bit but i remember back in 2012, I installed lion on my X60s which featured a 32 bit processor but its quite fast. So i have installed lion on its 8gb ssd. Every apps works! By its really slow. Because firstly the laptop bios have no achi option, secondly the ssd writing and reading speed according to: http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/SpeedTest/8580/ASUS-PHISON-SSDis very slow, thirdly if I'm not wrong this ssd is a PATA meaning IDE kind. So i flashed a custom bios made by a Japanese guy who enabled the achi option in the bios. Now its slightly faster. Im thinking of upgrading the currently ssd to msata. But i seen a lot of people saying its not possible without some mod as the asus uses something called flash_con. Despite the msata and mini PCI-E look resembles but its not the same due to the pin layout or something like that. After several hours of researching, I saw on Ebay where a guy is selling an adaptor: http://www.ebay.com/itm/mini-pci-e-msata-SSD-to-SATA-Mini-PCIE-adapter-card-/221818510797 I presume the adaptor is to convert msata to mini pci-e. The seller claimed that:" The speed and other properties is not changed,only form conversion interface. " So I wonder if i buy this and a msata, will this adaptor change the msata sata to IDE? Reason is because i need it to be in SATA mode, as I want to enable trim function in Mac OS X. Thanks Hi, any Mod who reading this, maybe you want to move this thread to the hardware components IDE/SATA section? Im so sorry, as i didn't saw the IDE/SATA section before posting this. Thank you very much
  10. Update x3: Reported that works also in Final Release. Update x2: Reported that works also in DP8. Update x1: Reported that works also in DP2. Hi guys! This is the IOAHCIFamily from Yosemite 10.10 patched to work with all SSD. Download section http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/256-enable-trim-on-1010-dp1/ Some user have trouble after copying the kext. In toto there are 4 methods to enable TRIM (use only one): Important: Add "kext-dev-mode=1" as Kernel Arguments or the computer won't boot. 1st Method (Obsolete. Use 2nd or 4th instead) Copy the kext, delete kernel cache in /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.cache/Startup/ and launch the following command in terminal: sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -prelinked-kernel /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache -K /System/Library/Kernels/kernel /System/Library/Extensions Then reboot normally. 2nd Method (For real Mac or Chameleon users) Launch this in terminal (are 4 commands): sudo cp /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext/Contents/MacOS/IOAHCIBlockStorage /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext/Contents/MacOS/IOAHCIBlockStorage.bak sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x00\x41\x50\x50\x4c\x45\x20\x53\x53\x44\x00|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00|' /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOAHCIBlockStorage.kext/Contents/MacOS/IOAHCIBlockStorage sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions sudo kextcache -prelinked-kernel /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache -K /System/Library/Kernels/kernel /System/Library/Extensions 3rd Method (Clover only) This is valid only if you use Clover bootloader. Add manually the KextPatch in config.plist: <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Name</key> <string>IOAHCIBlockStorage</string> <key>Find</key> <data> AEFQUExFIFNTRAA= </data> <key>Replace</key> <data> AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA= </data> <key>Comment</key> <string>TRIM Enabler</string> </dict> </array> And reboot. No kernelcache to rebuild! If you use Clover Configurator you can follow this steps: go to Kernel and Kext Patches add a new row in name put IOAHCIBlockStorage in find hex put 004150504C452053534400 in replace hex put 0000000000000000000000 in comment you can write what you want (a description for example) in InfoPlistPatch leave it as is (unchecked) Save and reboot. Or you can follow this video: 4th Method (Mac and Hack) Download this app http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/329-trim-enabler/ and run it.
