From my testing the fake boards don’t support custom flashing of firmware or the Mi Home app but the flashlight and scooter both work. The purple boards without the ninebot logo and usually with some Chinese writing are clones and these are meant for actual cloned M365 scooters. They work with an app called Fireplus (Android, iOS). I believe the clone boards are the ones that have issues with flashlights. The real OEM boards support everything no problem, custom flashing, Mi home app, flashlight, scooter, etcOneMadCow wrote: ↑Fri Jan 11, 2019 11:02 pmCircling 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.throwmeawaybro2515 wrote: ↑Fri Nov 23, 2018 11:09 pm.... 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.
Thanks! This is such an informative discussion.
Also it looks like bird is aware of people converting their scooters back to stock and obviously not a huge fan.
