I am not sure if this would help in your case but I have upgraded my 
N770 to use fixed gst-plugins-farsight package from repository.maemo.org 
(since I used 'apt-get upgrade', then ran into a reboot cycle, then set 
the flag 'no-lifeguard-reset' to get rid of this) and now audio and 
video players can play the files again and device does not reboot even 
when in production mode (with cleared flag)
