Sure. I tried asking a Senior Support Specialist if there were commands that allowed me to print the boot sequence, or pause (e.g., by depressing the spacebar). They indicated this was not possible. That seems weird and untrue, so if you can tell me how to do either or both, I'd be much obliged. In the meantime, I took photos of my boot sequence. Some are blurry because the photos were taken when lines were being added.
The sandbox code that starts out is blurrier, but it appears to be repeats of the following lines:
Sandbox: launchd(1) SystemPolicy: deny(1) file-write-unlink
//with repeats of this, intermixed with code that has "file-write-flags" in place of "file-write-unlink," and ReadMe.rtf in place of Welcome.rtf
Then later, similar lines with "Japanese" and "Italian" in place of "da".
Then later, still similar with "obsolete-files-full-install" in place of Welcome.rtf
And still other lines with "postinstall_actions/addDockIconUserPostflight" in place of Welcome.rft
And then there are lines related to MobileDevice rather than iTunesX that have what is I'm assuming an identifyer for my iPhone 5c (MobileDevice.5Z3185) followed by postinstall and preinstall_actions like registerbundle, usbeauxdpost (difficult to see), usbmuxdpre...
Later, these two command lines repeat for about three screenfulls. These are much clearer.
Sandbox: launchd(1) SystemPolicy: deny(1) file-write-flags / private/var/run/dyld_shared_cache_x86_64
Sandbox: launchd(1) SystemPolicy: deny(1) file-write-unlink / private/var/run/dyld_shared_cache_x86_64
These seem scary shared cache what!
At best it is irritating and elongating my sequence tremendously. I mean why the repetitiveness about seemingly simple and rote tasks. Now that I've taken pics of the code it seems like it has the potential to be less harmful At worst it is concerning because I can't see all the lines with photos, I don't know what all the lines mean in the boot sequence, and I don't know what scripts are being called.
Thanks in advance!!
It's not my code.
Hmmm. Either I’m still confused, or you are. If there’s none of your code involved, why are you posting this in the Apple Developer Forums?
Reading through your emails so far it seems to me that your issue would be better served by one of the following:
If you’re looking for help with the user-level behaviour of the system, post in Apple Support Communities, run by AppleCare.
If you’d like to see changes in the user-level behaviour of the system, file a bug report.

As far as I have got you have mentioned the ongoing scary logfile entries about Sandbox: ... deny ... during boot process.
These messages are, in fact, a good sign from the user's perspective as your operating system has reported denials and prohibited those actions. From the software development perspective this is a bad sign as some programs do not act according to the sandbox rules.
So, does this statement convince you (as user) to calm down as the operating system does take care?
