    Is there a way to verify that it actually works? Vs. just having that section display Yes.

    the only real way would be to run benchmarks -

    im a little scared to mess around with a hex editor, hopefully someone comes out with a program or something to make this a little easier.

    x2, just because it says "Yes" doesn't mean anything. In the 10.6 OS, it could just be a stub with no actual TRIM code.

    TRIM support is obviously built into the OS and it does seem like that particular thing is checking for whether the SSD is Apple SSD to enable it rather than checking to display "Yes". So hopefully someone can test it soon to see if write speeds do improve after a certain time.

    Anyway, it would be nice to know what is actually being edited.
