5. if not WSOD yet go back to 1 ;-)

This method is the worst one possible. Don't use it unless device is not responsive for more than 1 minute, there is hardware watchdog that should reboot device in 63 seconds if linux kernel becomes stuck somewhere so be patient

It'll only WSOD your tablet if it was already prone to it. Then again, nobody seems to really know what makes a 770 prone to WSOD, so...

It can happen on a brand new device as it can happen on a well seasoned one (I had it after 18 months)

So it is a bit hard to tell if it is prone to it or not :-)

The best possible advice (and it really should have come from Nokia, if they had a shred of decency in their corporate hides!) then would have been: Do everything you can to WSOD your 770 before the warranty runs out.

He he
As an engineer my point was exactly the same
but my friend from sales dpt said "No in that case it's not that They (NOKIA) didn't make a fix - they DID - they released new proper version ".

Consumer electronics is a bit tricky - rapid time to market vs. changes in technology, parts etc done by third party manufacturers and so on.
