comment How often and for how long does Trim Enabler need to run?
Samsung highly recommends TRIM under OS X, but that requires alteration of a kernel extension (kext). In 10.10, Apple includes a system check again all kexts and fails to load if one is found altered. But it's more of an initial security step and exploiting kexts isn't a huge security concern (seeing as it can be done in 10.9 and lower versions of OS X. You shouldn't feel wary about disabling OS X kext sanitation, especially since Samsung apparently admits their drivers perform a hell of a lot better with TRIM running. If I still ran my Samsungs, I would too under 10.10, all things considered.

comment Is there an app that bulk transfers camera photos to emails?
I cannot fathom why you wish to email gigabytes of pictures to yourself. Dropbox provides online storage that can be shared and accessed by any operating system. It also allows for batch uploading of images. iCloud Photo Library also allows the sharing of photos between iOS, OS X, PC, and the web. AirDrop too can transfer photos easily. The problem is you I'm afraid. You've adopted an archaic strategy that was ridiculous even back in 1999. I wholeheartedly suggest you find alternative strategies to deal with your photos. This question won't likely be answered for that very reason.

Image Capture is a much more efficient method of transferring photos: support.apple.com/kb/PH17894

comment SSD w/ brand new clean in stall of Yosemite fails to boot
Then you've traced the genesis of the problem to the drive. I would perform a complete format of the drive. Remove it from the system and put it into your external USB enclosure. Boot the system into IR and then select Disk Utility. Locate the drive and select the Erase tab. Format the drive to Mac OS Extended (Journaled). Shutdown and then re-install the SSD. Try again. If the problem persist, contact Crucial as the drive could likely be defective. If it's good, then update it's firmware (they usually have a bootable image for Mac users).

Calling on Internet Recovery comes before the drive is read from. You actually don't even need to have one installed to pull up IR as it's loaded to memory. Would be pointless rely on the drive as that means if you're install dies, you couldn't use it to recover your system regardless. What year is your MBP? Does it predate IR?

comment Mac Mail has very slow to send/receive mail (plus other bugs too)
@tubedogg awdl0 is a peer to peer created by iOS/OS X to transfer data between devices. The above terminal command, disables this adhoc network, so you lose AirDrop (an possibly Hand-Off). There's also absolutely no indication that disabling the P2P interface has anything to do with any of the bugs mentioned in the original question. I would personally recommend NOT doing this unless bluewhile can post up some credible sources that back up his claims. Lastly, I'm with you on suggesting random terminal commands without sufficient explanation.

I'm not sure why you're going through these convoluted steps, but it is likely the problem. Install the Crucial SSD into your MBP. Boot into Internet Recovery and format the drive (to remove what you have there now). Then install OS X. Upgrade to Yosemite through the Mac App Store. Then migrate your data over using Migration Assistant. Also, for clarity, please don't use shorthand; take the split second to write "with".

Why exactly are you trying to do this? I ask because it wreaks of spam. It also violates Yahoo! Mail EULA.

comment How do I find the version number of system libraries in different versions of OS X?
Apple does not make such things public. You may consider visiting an Apple Store as they all their Macs are running Yosemite to gather the information you require.

Dust is not a factor when soldering. Also, iFixit has a terrific teardown of the new mini: ifixit.com/Teardown/Mac+Mini+Late+2014+Teardown/30410

comment Is it possible to update a jailbroken iOS 7 to a version Apple has stopped signing?
No. You cannot install a version of iOS that Apple is no longer signing.
