Hamza Sood has discovered how to enable a somewhat functional dark mode in OS X 10.10 Yosemite Beta 2 via Terminal.

To enable the somewhat functional dark mode: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences AppleInterfaceTheme Dark

To undo, either remove the key (defaults delete) or change it to “Light”


Take a look at a screenshot of the result below. We'll be posting on the new features in OS X 10.10 Yosemite soon. Follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Works fine on Retina and non-retina, iMac and MBA... By the way guys, this is a BETA, if you don't know BETA means trial/ to be improved upon pending review/ pre-released version. So stop acting like issues won't be fixed by the actual release date....Noobs

They need to allow this for iOS 8, for night time.

It's beta so the fixing thing is unclear or if it even counts as a problem. Not saying you're wrong.
