Anyone try this with a Lyft scooter yet? They seem identical to the Bird scooters but just wondering if they have any other secrets we should know about before I pick one up at an auction. Humanbeing, any thoughts?
Converted a Lyft M365 with a fake blue clone board. Before doing anything remove the bottom battery cover and remove Lyft's custom battery splitter ( from what I hear you will fry the board) because it sends extra power up to Lyfts brain. Plug the battery back directly into the control board and then the control cable directly back into the control board.

Mi Home and M365 DownG don't work. M365 battery, M365 Dashboard, and M365 tools work just fine. With the last two you can turn on/off the cruise control, adjust the regen braking strength, turn on the rear tail light, and lock the scooter. Also gives you detailed info (like Mi Home app) on battery info, body temp, and mileage. Headlight works fine and switching from Eco to Normal mode too To view images REGISTER or LOGIN for full access.

Hey UncleDave - Does the purple one accept CFW?
The blue clone one (as in your photos) that I got from a China ebay seller...does not.

it says 1.4.2 in Mi app and I can connect to it with m365_downg but I cannot downgrade the firmware

I was able to repair one of the boards I exploded by replacing the 100uf capacitor and a small surface mount inductor next to the switch. Let me know what you are going to do with your blown ones, I might be interested in buying it off you to see if I could repair it too.

After I blew up the first two that I got from China (blue ninebot ones), I purchased replacements from a great eBay seller located in San Diego that ships very quickly for $40 each and they are purple ones. They work great with the M365 Tools app, didn't try Mi Home though.

Looks like Ebay may have removed the sellers account I was gonna try to snag some of these cause I'm near SD lol
They just cancelled that listing. He is still selling stuff though and the boards are now $5 less than when I bought mine, or still $40 including a dash cover.

I just tried a blue counterfeit dash on a lyfty. I did remove the extra wiring at the control board. When I go turn on the dash it lights up and flashes 60 times and turns off. When I try to connect with android and iOS I mostly get connection failure. If I'm lucky to connect with segway or mi home, I'll get disconnected withing a few seconds. It doesn't read much info when it does. m365tools does connect but I get disconnected fairly quickly and it doesn't read anything like battery info or serial, its all blank. I see this thread says most bluetooth apps don't work.
Besides this, I can't ride the scoot. won't accelerate or anything. It just turns itself off after 60 seconds.
What do you guys think???

My attempt is close to complete but throttle doesn’t seem to work. It connects to the mi home app which says the scooter is locked for 3 hours. Is this because the scooter was rolling when originally a bird and sent to impound? A couple others have had this issue with no reply. I’ve tried unplugging all power and waiting 3 hours with no luck.

Here's a fun one: I've started seeing the M365 scoots on street corners, with the brains ripped out and sometimes with the bottom covers off. Does anybody know what's up with that? Can Bird disable them some other way, or just homeless people etc messing around?

People vandalize them, and steal parts. Something none of us around here would do!
