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.

Darn, mine did not come with the collar. So far I haven't had an issue but I'll need to pick one up.

Yes, the black rivet in the collar needs to be drilled out.

Lyft ones have a bolt instead of the rivet. The bolt is a T27 Security Torx. I tried drilling out the bolts which works ok, and also several brands of torx bits that would snap right off, but finally found some better quality ones that work well and got them in bulk. So if you are looking to put a folding pole on a Lyft scooter, PM me and I send you a couple bits for a few bucks so you can take it out quick, clean, and easy.

Got my board today. Now I just need to find a Bird to try it in

Based on the ninebot font and logo, that board is a fake. You won’t be able to use the Mi Home App or flash custom firmware. For Android use M365 Tools, iOS use DarknessBot.

I have a question how stable are these folding poles when riding to they unlock when In a fast ride. Just worried that they might unfold on me while on a ride. What’s the best way to make sure that they don’t unfold what screws and bolts need to be tighten to make sure that don’t happen
I feel pretty confident that they are not going to just pop loose while riding around, as the tension on the locking clamp is pretty tight and is also adjustable. But the best way is probably to make sure the pole you buy comes with the "locking rings" that are described in an earlier post by another user. Mine didn't come with those, so I purchased some from China and still waiting for them to arrive.

Just finished my conversion - works like a charm.
Got my unit dirt cheap, and didn't realize why until I opened it up. Someone laid it down and stomped on the mast, shearing all of the wiring in the handlebars. Took about 3 hours to strip and re-connect each tiny wire, insulate, and feed them back through the access hole before putting it all back together.
I'm ready to convert another, but my Ebay seller is gone - anyone have a reliable source?

This eBay seller shows the correct Ninebot logo on the listing.

.... apparently there’s a bug in the board that is a common-ish problem where the headlight shorts out the board. So you can either have a working scooter, or a giant flashlight, but not both at once. Not the worst thing in the world.

Anyway, it’s not like I really care, but I can’t figure out how to connect to the scooter in the app.
Circling back on this. Are the issues due to it being a non-OEM board? If so, can I get a confirmation that these resolved with the correct board? The lighting is only an issue for the sake of a complete conversion.

Thanks! This is such an informative discussion.
