I was using xterm from maemo-hackers so it was killed. I followed the 
steps suggested above and in some previous threads and set the flag 
'no-lifeguard-reset'. After that my device didn't reboot anymore. I 
completed upgrade with 'dpkg --configure -a' and it seemed to fix the 
mess with my packages. However, after that I decided to try to clear 
that flag back hoping that tablet now does not need it. Clearing the 
flag resulted again in cycle reboot of my system. I was wondering 
whether this behavior  is alright?

Also as was mentioned by Johannes  Eickhold in 
video and audio players are not able to play files any more after this 
failure. With regards to this problem is flashing device the only way to 
fix it?
