Thought worth a quick post if people don't mind shipping from Germany rather than UK.

If you prefer to buy from a UK retailer Vive Scooters are selling for £415 here
vivescooters.co.uk/pro…ive



As in another post these are amazing fun to ride and in a few minutes with your phone you can up the speed from 25kmh to 35kmh. Costs less than 10p to charge and of course about as eco friendly as you can get other than a pushbike.

Has to be said these are only legal to use on private land although you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise.

My instructions from another thread on how to remove the speed limiter.



1. Download m365Downg from Play Store (only works on Android so you'll have to borrow a phone if you have iPhone).
2. Turn on your scooter. Open app and press "Connect" within 10 seconds of so. You should see "MiScooterxxxx" with random numbers where the xxxxs are. Click on this.
3. The scooter will beep to confirm connection.
4. Press "Check version". It will give versions for BMS (battery manager), BLE (Bluetooth) and firmware. BLE is probably 110 which you need to change as it doesn't allow custom firmware
5. The first thing you MUST do is downgrade to BLE90 (the software which communicates between your phone and the scooter). You can find it in lots of places if you search "BLE90 M365", e.g.

spzjulien.royalwebhosting.net/M36…zip


Open the > zip file < (do not unzip) in the app and flash across, takes a couple of minutes.


6. Once finished you will need to reconnect to your scooter. When you check version again it should say "BLE 90" or similar.


7. Now the exciting bit, choosing your own firmware. You can make your own via sites like M365 Pro Custom Firmwarebut I would start off with a ready made one because the custom firmware will basically accept any inputs, even ones which can fry the control board on steep hills. A good one to start with is M365 PRO DRV155 32kmh 50k 5% more power from this site

drive.google.com/dri…XXL

Despite the title it goes up to 34kmh and has much better acceleration than stock. BUT flashing new ones only takes a couple of minutes so you can try different ones very easily, from very aggressive ones if you don't mind sacrificing range to more economical ones.

To flash the custom firmware download it to your phone, connect to the M365 Pro like before and flash the > zip file < (do not unzip) across. Try to do it straight after you turn the scooter on so the scooter doesn't go to sleep. If it sticks, just try again.

After that the settings are instantly changed to the higher speed/power etc.

There are just two golden rules. If you don't follow them you may brick your scooter and need a new £40 display or a special connector.

1. Don't try and flash custom firmware without checking that your scooter has BLE 90 first (i.e. steps 5 & 6) (or you can use BLE 72 if you are having problems, but you will need to put back to BLE 90 afterwards for display and speeds to work properly. If you flash custom firmware on BLE 110 your scooter break.

2. Don't mix firmware. Older M365s mostly use 1.3.x or 1.4.x firmware. M365 Pros I think all use 1.5.x or 1.6.x. You can switch between 1.5 and 1.6, e.g. new scooters mostly come with 1.6.1 but you can flash 1.5.5 directly which is usually recommended. However, don't flash 1.3.8 firmware to your M365 Pro as it will break. The links I gave are only for M365 Pro so are safe to use.

Also obviously don't update the firmware through the Xiaomi app afterwards as it will reset to factory defaults.

Happy to help out if you have any issues but with the app it really is an easy process, I'm just writing it out in detail as there are a couple of important things to get right. Although of course it isn't officially supported and is at your own risk.

Where can you even use these?


It's a difficult question, because scooters are almost impossible to describe. One might ask the same about birds. What are birds? We just don't know.

That speed on a death trap like this is a bit dodgy ! Yes ! No ! Should be 15mph tops ! Regardless of the UK legality

As per OP there is always a risk with these deals which are basically Chinese companies shipping out of EU warehouses. Up to you if you want the extra savings from effectively buying direct from China. You can find similar sellers on eBay selling for £298.50 but these aren't allowed on HUKD.

I cant see them being road or pavement legal here in the UK until about 2022, long way to go

Many thanks for the speed hack tip, think I might give it a try. I bought one (365 pro) from DHGate just before Xmas for £328, it arrived after a few days from Poland, I just found a 3 pin plug charging lead (from an old sky box) and away I went. I commute along the seafront every day, and have had no problems whatsoever from police, as long as you're courteous to other people it seems fine to me.

Ah no you're quite right sorry. Must have been getting confused when I was checking prices. I wondered why they were so bloody cheap (and why I had paid so bloody much!).
This is a link to the one I bought for £328 at DHGate it is the PRO version.

How do you think the DHGate guarantee will be? Does it feel legit?

To be totally honest, I didn't really pay attention to that. I knew it was a reliable make, and was so excited to find it so cheap, I just went ahead and ordered it, knowing I would probably have to pay for any repairs. I have an electric scooter shop nearby, so I think I would be able to get it repaired there, albeit having to pay for it. I have had no problems so far and done nearly 100 miles on it *touches wood*

Very good deal.
Many thanks for the speed hack trick, I tried it last night and it worked great!!!! My 365 pro now goes up to 20 mph, which doesnt sound fast but it certainly feels fast! The only thing I got stuck on (until I googled it) is that you must not extract the zip file you download, the software uses the actual ZIP file.
I had some several problems with Tomtop so I don't buy nothing from them anymore. But tgis is a good price, tried to vote hot but some ' rookie' admin stopped this option on my account
I've got a scooter with the same spec as this (Inokim Light 2) but its overall a lot better than the Xiaomi, still I would highly recommend getting an ebike instead. You can pick good ones up for £500, and they're a lot more fun and a heck of a lot faster A-B journey time

It's also double the price, smaller battery and only one year warranty.

I'm not saying get the inokim instead, I'm reccomending an ebike. The Inokim is much better, though. Paper specs aren't everything, test drive the scoots and look at failure rates, Xiaomi has some real design flaws and the braking is so-so

I suppose each serves a purpose. Ebike less likely to get you into bother with police, go further and you can peddle when you run out of juice.
But I wouldn't want to fold an Ebike to fit in my boot if using it for gap commuting.
Then again I wouldn't want to take a scooter on more than 10mile run, don't think the body was appreciate that.
I haven’t used mine for many months!!!
It’s just a feature

They are different. Scooter you can go out with just your phone. If you need to go into a shop, train, bus you just fold and pick up. Never have the hassle of trying to squeeze bikes onto a train again.

Bikes are much more practical if you have to carry more & for ride comfort. But more hassle to lock or if you need to pick it up, and IMO less fun. Panniers on a bike mean you can transport a lot of stuff around you could never do on a scooter.

Personally I think you should have both, although I don't bother with ebikes because it's flat around here.
Good instructions. Only change I'd suggest is that after sorting out the BLE90 firmware, just stick with the GENKO firmware from m365pro.scooterhacking.org/ . It's tried and tested and doesn't change anything other than the speed cap under sports mode. Some of these other firmwares are changing power parameters and not worth the risk imho. Would definitely not recommend trying and testing random firmwares!

My 60 something year old neighbour exclaimed when he saw mine "So you're going to drive that dangerously and illegally on the road!"

Same guy who jumps in his 2000kg metal shell to drive 0.6km, spewing nitrogen oxides and particulate matter onto the children on the sidewalk.
There really is some irony in the hate small vehicles which produce no local pollution and minimal collisions with pedestrians produce amongst the driving community, who are in essence poisoning everyone in their vicinity.

Depends on your attitude to risk, obviously there is some risk in changing anything. However, the M365 Pro has quite a lot of redundancy built in, e.g. it will take batteries up to 60V, peak motor power up to 1000W. Either Xiaomi future proofing it or eyeing up the market for aftermarket addons.

Most failures seem to be people pelting it down hills with KERS on.

So almost certainly increasing the power above stock is safe, but it remains to be seen to what exact level. To me motor power 33k is about as far as I'd go.
Had one of the original ones for a couple of years, very practical and had no issue at all.
If it's new to you I would try it out for a bit without hacking the firmware for extra speed. IMO the stock max speed of 15mph is plenty fast enough and it's unnecessary to increase it. If you hit any sort of bump going at 20mph you are coming off, possibly damaging the wheel in the process.

No way damaging the wheel unless underinflated. Imo more likely to come off if you slide... from experience... falling off sliding
Hi, may i know your whole setting for cfw file M365 Pro 155 32kmh Stock power 2019.07.zip ?
I want to see the different with gonkad one

Because I tried to do custom on my own, I set max speed in 35 but still 28 (no effect at all). So I took your file and it works 35kmh
