Good information you got there. I believe that you could in theory flash the original firmware via JTAG to USB. And a developer has put the original firmware on GitHub, for both the control board and dash. Hope someone can test this out and share us the result.RSB0 wrote: ↑Mon Feb 11, 2019 12:10 pmThere are 2 kind of scooters, both based on the Ninebot ES4

-> Tracker is below the scooter, not connected to control board.

New Brain (like the one you show)
-> No Folding mechanism
-> Tracker is in front of the scooter connected to the control board.
-> The scooter unlocks like most rentals, using that control that receives unlocking .
-> No underlights
By now there are reports that just replacing the dashboard is not enough because the control board is flashed with somekind of custom firmware that keeps the scooter locked.
Reflashing the controlboard with the original (comercial) firmware probably does the job BUT there are still no know procedure online like there is allready for the xiaomi m365.
Share what you can find.
The tracker is just connected to vcc, - and acc so no real communication there BUT the tracker got a bt chip on it so might communicate with that but I don't think so. If you take one out it remains on the map for days (most likely till someone reports it)
