Getting at the slew of connectors on the back side of the logic board requires a little bit of careful navigation on our part and flexibility on the iPod's part.
No iPods were harmed in the making of this teardown. Unfortunately, we needed to pull off the soldered battery connections before we could tilt the logic board up to peek underneath.
A plastic opening tool makes quick work of disconnecting the various connectors on the logic board.
Unfortunately, we can't remove the logic board just yet. There is a ribbon cable routed underneath the battery that seems to lead to the lightning connector.
