Why should you take the blame? This is a consumer oriented device and software installation is promoted as a user feature - it should not brick the device, period!

What actually happened though - did the device end up in a reboot loop?

Wouldn't boot at all or stuck in a reboot loop?

You may need to provide more details, but quite a few people are experiencing reboot loops for no apparent reason, check https://maemo.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=999 for more details.
