Default So we have Trim already?




So as many of you already know, Trim was something introduced in Android 4.3 that apparently made many devices quite a bit faster. Pardon my ignorance, but is this what I'm look at here on my tablet or is this something else?

Yeah, you're confusing the two. The "Trim" you're thinking of is also called "Discard", and it's a feature of the EXT4 filesystem for Linux that's used on our tablets to let the SSD know when it can internally reclaim blocks of Flash memory that Linux isn't using any longer, which helps the internal EMMC Flash device we have stay fast.

Fear not, it's turned on in our devices already.

Okay then, this thread turned up to be a flop, but I'm glad I learned something interesting out of it. Thank you.

No problem, glad I could help. But I had no idea that app was there, and it appears to be related to the Video Editor ("com.lifevibes.trimapp").

Good question, and your supposed "evidence" of TRIM was a great LOL , which is great. Don't feel stupid, there's a first time for everyone. But thanks for the LOL

Please Thanks if it helped!
