OS X 10.10, iMessages crashing after upgrade

Surprisingly solution easy as 1.2.3.

Open Terminal it can be founded in Other folder in the Launchpad or in folder Utilities located in Applications.

Remove the following folders and/or files:
~/Library/Preferences anything with com.apple.ichat in the name

~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.imagent.plist one.
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.imservice.imessages.plist
~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.imessages.bag.plist
~/Library/Preferences/Messages
~/Library/Caches
~/Library/Containers/com.apple.iChat
~/Library/Saved Application State/com.apple.iChat

Restart your Mac. Open iMessages and go to iMessages -> Preferences -> Accounts and check your account information. If it is necessary create account from scratch. All your messages should be recovered. It may take a lot of time due to db converting process.
