Learn how to hack the Segway Ninebot ES2 firmware. This speed hack will spice up your Ninebot scooter!

After the success of hacking Bird's Xiaomi Mijia M365 scooter I wanted to try doing it again with their Segway Ninebot model.

You can check out the Xiaomi Mijia M365 scooter hack here.

Update 10/19/2019
There are a lot of fake parts floating around eBay, Amazon and Alibaba. Don't gamble with unknown buyers and buy from a trusted source, ScooterClone. You'll find him on the ScooterTalk Marketplace.

ScooterClone: Segway ES2 ES4 OEM FLASHED Speed Controller (ESC)


The process was the same.
(1) Buy OEM parts from eBay.
(2) Take off Bird's hardware.
(3) Install purchased items.
(4) Download the app.

With little surprise it worked right away and took 30 mins to complete. The difficulty level is low and similar to the M365 model. This was a plug in play and required no soldering.

Here is the dashboard I purchased.

Tools Needed for the Hack

Update 01/10/2019:

You will need security bits to take the scooter apart and linked below is the recommended tool kit. It includes all the bits you'll need to disassemble any scooter.



Thank you to @bikeaddiction for finding this!

Segway's App

The app isn't required to use this scooter. If you do not connect the scooter to your phone it will remain unlocked and you'll be able to ride it without issue.

Download the app: Some cool features found in the app.

The app has a section to change the light pattern.

Is there any way just resetting motherboard?

I can't get the motherboard show up in ninebot app. But I find it showing up as a Bluetooth device.

It is programmed to one of the scooter renters. It is a st1-st4 motherboard.

There must be a way to reflash with some app or something?
