Disassembling a Synology USB Station SUS-201

So I got bored while doing a backup of a usb disk and disassembled an older Synology SUS-201 disk station. This product contains a 10/100 MAC and two usb connectors for connecting harddrives to.

The unit consists of a RDC SoC processor, 32 MB FLASH, 16 MB SDRAM and a 10/100 Ethernet PHY.

There are some debug pins available and when inspecting the PCB carefully you can see where the test probes have been sitting. If I had an oscilloscope I'd try to see if I could find the serial port and work from there, but that's an adventure for another day.
