As of OS X 10.10, Apple uses kext signing. Ever since it has become difficult and dangerous to manually activate TRIM for third-party SSDs on OS X. That means users with non-Apple SSDs will sooner or later see degrading write speeds.
So I am wondering what are my options to avoid this situation. Some approaches I could think of imply additional problems:
- Are you aware of any alternative approach, that does not require disabling kext signing?
- Are there tools or tricks to manually clean up a SSD (i.e. issue a TRIM command)?
- If I decided to temporarily use a tool like TRIM Enabler how long would it need to be activated, in order to clean the disk?
To summarize: No TRIM on Yosemite. What can I do?
