Hey,

 

I got the advice that I should use Trim Enabler for my boot SSD drive. Got this link: https://gist.github.com/return1/4058659 and I'm trying to do it in Terminal but I have no idéa how.

 

It says I should type in Terminal the following:

 

sudo cp /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOAHCIBlockStorag e.kext/Contents/MacOS/IOAHCIBlockStorage /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOAHCIBlockStorag e.kext/Contents/MacOS/IOAHCIBlockStorage.original

 

# for Mountain Lion 10.8.3 - 10.8.5

sudo perl -pi -e 's|(\x52\x6F\x74\x61\x74\x69\x6F\x6E\x61\x6C\x00{1,20})[^\x00]{9}(\x00{1,20}\x54 )|$1\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00$2|sg' /System/Library/Extensions/IOAHCIFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/IOAHCIBlockStorag e.kext/Contents/MacOS/IOAHCIBlockStorage

 

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions/

 

# now reboot!

 

Which line do I paste in and where? Also, my regular password for my user account doesn't seem to work for this. Isn't it supposed to be the regular admin password for the computer?
