Just as a quick notice:

The basic thingy seems to work on GTA01Bv03:

  echo some >/dev/watchdog

and it reboots after about ten seconds.
(this already halped me more than once now)

I personally would recommend power-off instead of a reboot though.
If there is a problem (why would the watchdog be triggered otherwise), there is
a chance, that this problem comes after the reboot again, ending in an endless
reboot loop. When the user notices it, the battery is maybe already empty.
powering the phone off on the other hand leaves the user with a charged device,
which makes debugging easier for him/her.

Just my 2 cent.
