  1. I wrote a message to that seller asking what kind of modification is it, and got below response: 'Hi, no it’s not ‘swallowbot’, it’s just a speed limiter modified to 25km/h.' Very interesting that somebody else was able to modify this firmware as well.
  2. I found this on eBay (UK seller). Is somebody giving higher max speed than Swallowbot firmware??? This is over 25km/h limit presented on the screenshot there, while you can only have 23km/h in Swallowbot (more only combined with the hi-profile tires, which is not presented in the app) https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F163841844052
  3. @FreeRide It's funny with those tires from AliExpress they sent me them in separate packages and one arrived the other is having some de-tours, so I am unable to do anything more having only one. Anyway I was testing the upgraded with Swallowbot Ninebot mini (N3M240) to check the actual range to see how the increased speed afects battery comsumptuon. Before that I was realy able to do 21-22km on a full charge (I weigh 62kg). Now with the Swallowbot I went once 16km non-stop from my home to work and there was just 0,5km left when I arrived. The unit however, after being turned off for 8h with no charging, showed 23% charge when I turned it on while leaving the office (which I found wierd...), so I decided to continue my examination and went around 1km to underground and than 1,5 from underground to my home and still there were few drops of juce in the battery when I was back.
  4. It doesn't make much difference in output in fact: EU is 63V*1.9A~120W power and US 59.5V*2.0A~120W - so both do the same job in the same amount of time with just slightly different V vs A parameters: EU V > US V but US A > EU A - math is the same.
  5. That's the official way... And here is the tool sold separately: https://banggood.app.link/NiazD8H06Y The tool is for both Ninebots - mini and miniPro.
  6. The board with flashed Swallowbot firmware returned! This is insane ...still waiting for high-profile tires but even 23 kmph makes huge difference.
  7. Only for the brave. Russian Hack for the Mini Pro I cannot access it now... - in fact the whole Commercial section seems to be gone.
  8. @oceanic_123 I have sent them my board beginning of July from Poland with simple post letter option - but with very good packaging. It was like 35 PLN (~10 USD) plus 2500 RUB (~40 USD) for firmware flash service and 1200 RUB (~20 USD) for return way. So not more than 80 USD total. It is now on a way back tour with tracking info, its just much slower than DHL/Fedex priority shipping. If you are willing to sacifice time it is far less than you have mentioned. It should be back in a couple of days plus High-profile tires from China that are on the way as well and soon I am hoping to upgrade my Ninebot mini to 25 kmph. Will post how the full upgrade went.
  9. So I should expect difference in motors between N3M320 and N3M240 if I am correct? But on the other hand N3M240 has the same parameters as N3M260 and @trevmar suggestes motors are the same as for N3M320. Is it actual difference in hardware of the motors or just their power parameters due to different battery - if I would connect M320 battery to M240 unit - would it increase speed as well?
  10. And is there any actual difference in max speed due to lower battery capacity between N3M320 and N3M240 (N3M260)? On the data spec stickers you see: 18km/h and 16 km/h respectively. Attached oryginal stickers: N3M240 is mine, N3M320 I found on the Internet and that made me slightly concerned... If the software is the same and the motors should be the same as well I would not expect any other difference than range due to lower battery capacity - or maybe I am wrong. Are there any proved data regarding actual max speed for those two models you are aware of?
  11. @FreeRide I've just ordered the same 'speed/sport' tires for my mini and found your excellent guide for swaping them - big thanks!! One thing that concerns me - is it acctually possiblle to remove/attache fenders without touching the wheels (or at least I need to make them loose)?
  12. After 1,5 year and more than 1500km on 1.4.0 and almost lost of hope I have finally been able to try this widely recommended 1.1.7 on my mini. Feels completely different without all those speed penalties, much smoother pushback, not mentioning uphills. Thank You!! @MRN76 Still the imposed max speed cap is frustrating so hoping this will be a step to provide Swallowbot firmware the same way soon... as you do with modifications for one-wheelers. Valounteering to test and pay whatever reasonably necessary if ever possible.
