First things first: This is experimental and we take no responsibility for what you do to your computer with these instructions.

With the release of the Lion Beta, the Mac OS now has support for TRIM use on SSDs.  TRIM allows SSDs to perform better by erasing unused data sectors ahead of time.  More on TRIM here.

However, some enterprising users have been able to get TRIM support on Mac OS 10.6.7

Update: Oskar Groth, also known as Cindori, built a script to enable any SSD on 10.6.7.

Download TRIM Enabler, follow along in Mac Forums, Xlr8yourmac, and Hardmac was first to document the process.
