    The update broke my wifi connection. I restarted my router, but that is not the problem because it is working fine with my iPhone and my iPad. :(

    I almost can't do anything without Internet and I suppose that I need a way to downgrade or something.

    Anyone else is having issues with 10.10.2? :mad:

    10.10.2 is a beta release, as such you should expect and prepare for issues requiring rollback.

    Dont you have a Time Machine or other backup?

    My wifi has been fine with 10.10.2... and it has fixed the intermittent bluetooth disconnection issues I was suffering on the released 10.10.1 .... Some graphics are also improved. i.e. About this Mac...

    if you don't know how to restore your system after installing a developer beta, that should be a red flag to you, to not go messing around with your system.

    If you want to be mad at someone, it isn't Apple.

    Didn't know that it was a beta update. I even didn't know that I was enrolled on the beta program.

    Anyway, thank you for the most unhelpful post of the year.

    ------------

    I will wait for an update or maybe I will format the computer with cmd+R I suppose.

    My advice to people is to wait before updating to 10.10.2, just that. Thanks. :apple:

    So how did you get it? It doesn't even show up as available in your App store unless you sign up to the Beta program....?

    ..Hope you didn't torrent it....

    Fortunately I did not use any torrent, just the Mac Appstore update. :)

    Yeah, I signed up for the beta program some months ago, before Yosemite. I wanted to try Yosemite and I forgot about it.

    Yesterday a pop up showed up and I pressed YES without reading anything.

    It was absolutely my fault not to make a backup before a beta update. Also was my fault to not be aware that it was a beta update.

    Anyway, just wanted to alert you guys that 10.10.2 it is messed up and you shouldn't update it right now.

    Cheers! :)

    I didn't think they had let the .02 "beta" program version out yet. Only the dev version, which is probably a good thing for now.

    Unless I'm the only one, 10.10.2 hasn't been seeded to beta users, only developers.

    WiFi dropped on my old 2007 MacBook but not my 2013 MacBook Pro when I moved them to the 10.10.2 seed. However, after turning WiFi on/off a couple of time to see if it would reconnect I rebooted and that resolved the problem for me. YMMV.

    So because you had an issue, no one else should update either?

    How did this happen?

    I have been signed up for the developer program for a couple of years. I had thought about trying Yosemite before release but never installed it after downloading (The warnings were enough for me) I recently installed the update 10.10.1 because Yosemite had messed up my wifi stability. It worked fine for about a week, now it has gotten flaky again. Sometimes it does not see my regular router for 3-4 minutes. I have no option for downloading a 10.10.2 update in app store. Where did this guy get it?

    You can install the seed configuration utility from the mac dev center, which should give your mac app store access to the developer betas, or use the direct links in apple's developer forums.

    10.10.2 sounds like the worst beta that Apple has ever issued. :confused:

    Actually it's a seed build preview and like all seeds it has it's share of problems. Usually the beta releases are more stable versions. Also I don't think Apple is doing beta versions on incremental updates. The OP says it just showed up the App Store but that sure seems suspect if he/she is not registered Apple Seed/Developer.

    I for sure never cross a road with my eyes closed anymore, but lessons learned the hard way in the past though! ;)

    Good luck reverting your Mac back to 'normal'!

    Cheers

    He is, he just forgot. :eek:

    People signing up for these thinking they are just getting earlier releases but not understanding what they are getting or taking any sensible developer precautions, well they get what they get...

    How could someone sign up to be an AppleSeed or paid developer and not know? I can understand the beta program but AppleSeed requires registration and an acceptance application process through the AppleSeed portal. It involves a good bit of effort (and luck) to be accepted.

    OP signed up for beta. Beta doesn't have access to developer. What the OP said isn't adding up.

    What OP tried to do was to give this community a piece of advice from a mistake he did, so no one else has to suffer it, and all that he is getting is these kind of "you deserve it" posts.

    i really regret to have posted it, because I just tried to help and I feel bad now. :(
