For those of you who purchased a Bird Xiaomi M365 from Seibert's Towing here is how to get it to work. Since none of the shared scooter companies are still using the M365s in their fleets we don't have to worry about someone using this info to steal scooters. Right @edmund?

The Story of These Scooters
A story will go here...

Why Are They so Easy to Hack
In a rush to be the first to market Bird, Lyft, Spin, and many other scooter operators purchased consumer grade scooters. Here is a review of the Xiaomi M365, the first shared scooter. To get them on their system they took the brain out of and replaced it with their box. They did not change any firmware on the scooter and the only other thing they did was slap a sticker on the neck.

How to Get These Scooters Working
To get your scooter working you'll need to take off the Bird brain and replace it with the original dashboard. That's it, you're done! To view images REGISTER or LOGIN for full access.


What to Buy
The original M365 dash boards are available on eBay, Amazon, and other places online. You'll also want to pick up a charger.

What About these Fancy Dashboards with Numbers?
This is the dash for the M365 Pro. It's basically the same scooter as the original Xiaomi M365 except the dash displays your speed. Users on the forum have been able to get these to work but I haven't tried. Can anyone chime in on how this works?

What Tools do I Need?
The shared scooters are equipped with security screws to keep people out. Grabbing a tool set like the one below will do the trick. You'll also need a razor blade to take off the black rectangle sticker on top of the Bird brain to access the screws to remove it.



What to Watch Out For?
Clone dashboards are a real problem and you'll most likely get one. Xiaomi just doesn't make enough OEM boards to go around. I'll track down the thread that went over this and post a link. Most of the clone boards do work and can be flashed.

Note - I'll update the post more when I have some time.

Hi! I bought a scooter from Seibert's! I went to scooterclone's store on eBay for my board and display. They were mentioned in another thread on here (I think). There's also a youtube video someone here in RVA made as a tutorial.

I was also planning on using humanbeing21's thread as a guide, but alas it is no longer T.T

@wonderley What questions do you have?

The M365 is an awesome scooter with tons of people customizing it. You'll love it!
Oh none yet! I'm waiting on the OEM board and display to arrive.

Down the road I'd like to make it a folding scooter, so I guess my question would be to I need the $60 folding pole or can I get by the KO $30 dollar ones?

OH! Here's one. Is the display easy to remove once installed in case I want to upgrade to the pro board at somepoint?

Have you tried @onoff's suggestion?

Were you able to connect it to the Mi Home app?

I charged one of mine up, changed out the board to the OEM board, and everything lights up properly, but the scooter just won't move. Not sure why the throttle doesn't seem to work. Tail light works properly, headlight works properly. Just no go. Any help would be appreciated.

Don't waste your money on the folding neck. Many people who purchased an original M365 upgrade to the fixed neck due to the vibrations the fixed necks cause.

It's easy to swap out boards once you've done it once. You'll see.
