I got a couple of those also - have them in raid 0 right now. The write scores are about the same as my 80 GB Intel but the reads are flirting with 400 on ATTO. I just ordered another Kingston ( $104 this time around ) to add to the raid. Not sure if I'll keep the raid 0 or go with a raid 5. It seems the failure rate is low with these SSD's so I might go with 0 for the increased speeds.

Do any of you guys know if it would be possible to make a raid 0 with one cracked kingston 40GB and one intel v 40GB? Have a kingston and would like to increase the os partition but these ssds are hard to find nowadays.

You can raid both Drives...but you will not have TRIM. Trim for now is not availalbe in RAID configs.

Hello Entreprise,

Congrats for such a good tutorial. I managed to get 2 V-Series 40Go trimed very easily thanks to you.

But now I've got an issue : one of my SSD happen to be defective and I've got to return it to Kingston for RMA. I need to restore kingston's firmware before sending it back. Do you know a method to do so?

I took full responsability when enabling TRIM of course. If there isn't any way to reverse the process I won't cry, but if there is one chance I would be glad to know how to.

Tanks a lot.

Cheers. Thanks also goes to Telnet for sure.

Good question and honestly I do not know.

1. You would need the Original firmware file
2. You would need the flashing application to flash the firmware back. I am not sure if the Intel flashing utility is capable of doing this considering the Kingston SSD contains Intel components.

Perhaps someone could shed some light on this ?

You would have to modify Intel 02HA firmware loader in a similar way as the 02HD firmware loader is currently modified, and in addition the firmware version check would have to be disabled. After this DATA SET MANAGEMENT would have to be disabled with HDAT2 or similar.

I guess that you might just try to send your drive as it is, as unofficially Kingston support have referred this thread as how to enable TRIM. They might not notice/care that the drive is modified.

Thanks for your answers both of you guys. And thanks Telnet for your workof course.

Actually, I am not qualified to modify any firmware updater, even if I would love to. But since the original firmware of Kingston SDD is Intel's 02HA, returning it back to RMA with 02HD, with trim locked back thanks to HDAT2,should be ok shouldn't it?

So the way to remove the trim with HDAT2 would be with the DATA SET MANAGEMENT command?

(I am asking all of this because some people of france hardware forums are asking for some similar solution. So I think this information may be useful for others. )

I don't want to send it back to Kingston the way it is, for they may just tell me to stick it in my ass. That's why I think that if I just remove the trim, htey might just not notice that it's been modified...

Thank you guys.

You have to enter Device Configuration Overlay (DCO) Menu, then select Modify and then set DATA SET MANAGEMENT to disabled.
