If i was trying to steal it, i’d put in in the trunk of my car and drive off...
I’m trying to realise how these things work
Okay, it just looked like it!
No, doing all that won't make it invisible or roll. It'll stay in a lock state and on most of them it's a tracker that's in a box on the column. The unit is self contained, so uplugging the wires coming out of the column will only unplug the lights and the dashboard, but the main controller and the battery will still connected together.
The ones around here dont have any “extra” boxes, apart from the secondary battery pack, aka: aside from the orange stickers and qr code bracket, they look exactly like the stock es4. So, whatever that thing has, it’s inside the stock ninebot frame. Also, when i try to move it, it immediately locks the front wheel and starts to beep and flash the side lights. If i press the button on the dash, it just shows the battery level and a single white dot just above that (probably a bug in the code). On the voi app, the scooter shows up pretty accurately along with the battery level and last digits of its serial number...
Here’s how it looks:

Notice the yellow (hive?) scooter on the background, with its black box above the front wheel, similar to the lime.
Meanwhile, i found something on youtube, a repair guide... it’s all in chinese, but the images are clear enough, it’s a full dissassembly:
