comment Mac mode where you can see code on startup
Coding was done on the black screen which still exists under all that GUI. You can see that it starting up in Verbose Mode - which is also the way to get out of kernel panic. Hold down Comm-V.

It's accessed in your Recovery Disk. Does not affect user accounts, but backup computer first. SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner will clone your disk to an external drive. Fast connection means about 20 minutes download, and then it installs itself.

comment How Do I know which Version of Beta OS X I'm Running?
The above comment link has your answer, although it is an incomplete reply. But the OS X Daily page just confirms that this is the fifth developer Beta, number as shown in your About This Mac: Beta 15A235d.

Generally, copying logs to the site isn't any help and takes up space. The question itself, however, was well-formed.

comment Sound doesn't work when I plug in headphones
Occasionally without thinking, I've plugged headphones in the second little input on the left side of my MBPro - the holes are identical - but if you look very, very closely, there are symbols ... it's the first that is the headphone jack.

comment CTRL key not working properly
I used a little rubbing alcohol on a q-tip, to get a bit of the alcohol under some sticky keys (ok, food spill) and tapped them a few times... it cleaned and then evaporated. Previously, when left-control stopped working and still had Applecare - they replace keyboard.

This behavior has meant a failing (or failed) motherboard in the past.

comment connecting yosemite to wifi 5ghz networks at channels > 149
The question is not clear, some of it seems to be in the title ... but why channel 149? If you can't connect to your 5Ghz at all, let us know.

If you let iPhoto or Photos or even Image Capture import the device photos, does anything show up?

comment File Open/Save dialog boxes hang infinitely
The usual diagnostics done? Do you own Disk Warrior? An SMC reset for your machine, a startup from the Recovery Disk (partition) & run Disk Utility from there ... but I repeat, often a reinstall solves.

comment Non-existing iCloud shared stream occupying space
Maybe the phone is telling it that .... some device thinks you have a shared stream.

comment Wi-Fi fails to connect after OS X 10.10.2 Update
... just to add, an app like WiFi Scanner (accessagility.com) will see your networks (hello, Apple).... connecting that way gets future Yosemite recognition going.

comment Wi-Fi fails to connect after OS X 10.10.2 Update
Sourcerer, thanks for adding that. It is indeed way glitchier in Yosemite to get on your own 5G network. I should have added,create both network in Airport utility - using some offbeat channels - and once you're on, try switching networks in the network menu extra.
