Nope, it is a 1st gen iPod mini. I bought two, a 1st gen which I kept for me and a 2nd gen one which I used the SD to CF adapter and now it uses a 128gb SD card and I gave it to my son.
When I was working on mine I had a problem finding the right click wheel for it because when you order them from eBay the seller was sending me the click wheel for the 2nd gen mini and the 1st gen mini doesn't even boot with that clickwheel. I ended up ordering a used 1st gen mini clickwheel and removed the white wheel and center button from the new 2nd gen clickwheel that's why the iPod's clickwheel color matched with the color of the aluminum body.
I can take pictures of the the board but I won't do it until I receive the 256gb CF card.
iTunes shows the iPod as it came from factory, pink iPod and gray letters on the clickwheel (only 1st gen iPod has that combination)
