Can I replace my logic board and still keep my current memory?

I've recently replaced my ipod screen/glass that had cracked with a new one I ordered online. It was working great for a while even though I wasn't able to fully glue it back on and keep it closed. This caused the connection cable to smash its connector on the logic board. If I now replace my logic board will I be able to salvage all that I have on my ipod, including apps, pictures, settings, and music?? If not is there any other way to fix my ipod and save what I currently have on it?

Is this a good question?

Josh, all your files are saved on the NAND memory IC's on your logic board. Thre is no easy DIY way to access the memory directly. So if you replace your logic board, it will be gone. If you install a new logic board, you might be able to restore your last backup onto it. For board level repair, you might try to contact the user hectordtruong on here http://www.ifixit.com/Users and see if he can help you. He usually does board level repair for the iPhone but may have an option for you as well. Hope this helps, good luck
