Hello everyone

I have bought a Ninebot F40D(v5.4.9) and I can confirm the following concerns I have saw already in this topic:
- on my F40D, when set to 25 or 30 km/h it doesn't lock the motor, and everything is working nice and smooth.
- both modes F40E(25km/h) and F40 Global(30km/h) are working
- when setting the region to F40 Global, the speedometer shows abnormal values. It seems to show them right from 0 to 13-15km/h but after that is barely increasing to a max of 21-22 km/h while the real speed I am pretty sure it gets up to 30-31km/h

What are the commands that can be sent via Scooter Hacking Utility -> Tools -> Commands? I am thinking to build a bluetooth remote control in order to switch regions at a push of a button in case of police control which happens pretty often in my country. Is there a list of commands which can be sent via bluetooth?

Hello,

Is there a new Version of the hacking tool in prospect, to hacking Ninebot F30D with V5.7.7?

A downgrade to V5.4.9 isn't possible, without open the scooter, i think?

Thanks a lot for your work!

Can confirm that you can change regions back and forth on the F40a with no issues at all.
Apon first update of the F40a out of the box the region is set to (Global F25 25kmh) as default.
I recommended to change it to (Global F40 30kmh) using the ScooterHacking app.
The battery and motor recieves the power well and doesn't drain the battery as fast as you would expect.

Hi comunity,

I have an Ninebot F40E and can confirm that with the utility I can run the Global region hack without problems on the lastest Firmware.
The motor starts without problems and speedwise i can reach 32/33 Km/h measured with GPS. Battery weird as it may be I have no extra drain. I use 50% of it during the day be it with EU region (33 Km/h) or EU region (25 Km/h).

The only issue that I have is the speed counter on the scooter is not accurate, when I am full speed it only shows 26 Km/h but on my GPS it says 32/33 Km/h and it also messes up the milage I make, for example from my house to my work place 2.21 KM with the EU region but with the hack it only shows as 1.90Km (maybe because of the faulty speed advertised?). Hope you guys could fix this.

Hello Everyone.

Just bought an F25e , i tried to change region to F40 Global but with no clue, i got problems while accelerating and the weird sound you all hear. So i changed region to F30 global, same 25kph but slightly more torque.

You confirm that if i downgrade to 5.3.4 i can use the F40 global correctly?

I tried to downgrade with the official DRV repos but with no success, it just says "BAD FILE" .

Do you know how to correcly downgrade F25/30 ?

Thx
