After further examination, we found a way to open the logic board without completely destroying it.

Samsung chip underneath the metal shield on the left side of the board on the left. Ours reads K9MCGD8U5M. The 4 GB model that Think Secret took apart had K9HBG08U1M on it, which is a 4 GB chip

Samsung memory stacked with a 620 MHz ARM architecture processor, ARM1176JZF. Could be a Samsung S3C6400. Numbers: 339S0030ARM, 8900B 0719, NOD4BZ02, K4X1G153PC-XGC3, ECC457Q3 716. The processor is likely stacked on the SDRAM, which could be two 512 Megabit chips. The processor could have H.264 and MP3 hardware decoding built in.

The chip above the ARM is a Wolfson audio chip. Part numbers WM8758BG and 73AFMN5.

The chip underneath the ARM is a Linear Technology 4066 USB Power Li-Ion Battery Charger, which Apple uses in the iPods as well.
