How to hack a Bird scooter! Learn how to use a Bird scooter conversion kit to hack the Xiaomi M365 Bird scooter. Convert a Bird scooter into a personal scooter.

Came across a conversion kit on eBay to turn Bird's Xiaomi MIJIA M365 scooter into a personal unit. The expected delivery date is longer than I'd like, Nov 5 - 15th. Fingers crossed this works. To view images REGISTER or LOGIN for full access.

Durable Board Dashboard bluetooth Module Part for Xiaomi MIJIA M365 BIRD Scooter

Note: Some eBay sellers are shipping reproduction Circuit Boards. Some users have reported issues pairing the scooter to the Mi Home App when using these boards. Refer to this post to see how to tell a real from a fake. Big thanks to @wu wear for figuring this out.

Hello

quick question: one the bird brain is opened, do you have to carefully unplug everything or can you just rip everything off? In other words, are the cables on the bird circuit going to be plugged in the OEM board?

Thanks

A legitimate Scooter Guy does not just “rip everything off”.
Unplug the old parts, then plug in the new. Headlamp, brake, throttle and databus all plugged connections.

I just acquired 2 birds through an auction, charged them up and the dash came to life and they started beeping. I'm assuming bird was looking for them, so I took apart the dash and removed the board with the sim card. 2 days later my first new control board showed up, so I plugged it all in. Seemed pretty simple, everything was color coded so no way to screw it up. All together and it does nothing. No lights, no beeps, no nothing. Made sure battery was charged, unplugged it for a minute and back in, and still its a brick. No lights on the handlebar control board. Any suggestions or did I get a junk control board? I ordered 2 different ones for both scooters just in case this happened

This was a 100% plug n play project. You'll need specialty bits to remove all the Bird hardware. I still have some cosmetic work to do and will post a step by step guide on how to do this. Will probably have time to get to it over the weekend.

I've only driven the scooter up and down the street to test that it worked. Haven't had an opportunity to explore the app yet.
Hi human being, I checked through the first few pages of this thread and was unable to find this step by step, am I blind or is it else where? Lol
