Ive got a couple updates, the chip that says Hynix is a 512 MB ram chip, details here: http://www.alldatasheet.com/view.jsp...121622DTP-D43-
The chip next to it is the IC, details found here: https://www.kynix.com/Detail/385901/ATJ2279B.html
The third chipset did not come back from the numbers on it. but since we have found the ram and the IC, it is fairly clear the last one is the internal memory. But here is the snag, I cant seem to locate any partition that is hidden on the chip... the console is sold and advertised as 8GB, but we get 6, seemingly because the other 2 GB are reserved for a system partition, but I cant locate it as of yet. I cant even get any information that the chip itself is actually 8gb. not being able to access a certain partition, and not being able to see that it is there at all are two very different things. Im not sure this will work via a PC. I might need to wire directly to the board. The other option is that the IC actually contains some flash memory as well, and that is where the system partition is located. I've got it narrowed down to a couple of ideas, but unfortunately it looks like I might have to open the unit once again to figure it out. It would be easier if someone was able to find the firmware files for the device. As it has a firmware folder built in, I am pretty sure the company intended to release an update .zip file at some point that we could place in that folder and flash it. If we can track that down we can look at whats inside of it. possibly even alter the contents pre flash to install other things. I'm not done trying with this device. But I will have to step it up from the most simple approaches into more drastic measures.
