Since upgradeing to release 6 of the SDK I've been having a lot of trouble with my dev alpha.
When I first installed release 6 of the firmware, upon restart, the device got stuck at the startup screen forever. I had to do a "Repair" operation.
Once I got it up and running, I ran my app and received a strange error:
ldd:FATAL: Could not load library libbb.so.0
A few seconds later, the screen on my dev alpha went black. I tried to start it again, but the startup screen again played forever. I tried restarting it again, and the same outcome occurred.
I did another repair, and fortunately this time I was able to run my app ok.
I sat down today to do some new development for the first time in a couple of weeks. At first things seemed to be working ok, but after about 30 minutes of development I tried to launch a debug session from the IDE. (as opposed to Run)
I got an error in the IDE about not being able to attach to the PID, or something to that affect. I tried a second time, and whamo, the screen goes black again.
I rebooted the device and the startup screen is playing forever again.

That funny error hasn't reared its head since my original installation of version 6, so it's probably no longer in play.
I do definitely have version 6 installed now.

The very first time deploying to version 6 firmware I was using version 6 of the SDK, although perhaps there's some chance that when I hit "Run" it didn't actually re-compile and used a version 4 build?!
Anyway, I've been using the version 6 SDK since it was released, so these recent cases of my device being bricked are definitely involving version 6 SDK and version 6 firmware.

I'm having alpha issues as well. I really don't know what to do.
I haven't been able to code much since this has happened and no one is able to help.
I'm just shocked that so many people are having so many issues with the update.
