Unlocking the Full Potential: How to Remove Speed Limiter on Xiaomi Electric Scooters

Electric scooters have taken the world by storm, and Xiaomi is one of the leading manufacturers in the market today. Their scooters are known for their sleek design, reliability, and competitive pricing. However, many users might not be aware that their Xiaomi electric scooter has a built-in speed limiter, which restricts the top speed to meet local regulations and safety measures. In this article, we'll guide you through the process of how to remove the speed limiter on your Xiaomi electric scooter, allowing you to unlock its full potential.

Before proceeding, be aware that removing the speed limiter may void your warranty, and riding at higher speeds may be against local laws and regulations. Always prioritize safety and use proper personal protective equipment.

Step 1: Firmware Modification

To remove the speed limiter, you need to modify the scooter's firmware. There are a few online tools specifically created for this purpose, such as the Xiaomi M365 and Xiaomi Pro custom firmware generator. Access the generator through your web browser and follow the instructions provided.

During the configuration process, you can customize various aspects of your scooter's performance, including top speed, motor power, and energy recovery strength. Be cautious when making these adjustments, as setting values too high may lead to overheating or other damage.

Step 2: Connect to Your Scooter

To load the custom firmware onto your Xiaomi electric scooter, you'll need an Android device with Bluetooth capabilities. Download a compatible application, such as the m365 DownG or m365 Tools, which allows you to communicate with your scooter and upload the firmware files.

Ensure your scooter is turned on and within Bluetooth range. Open the app and connect to your scooter. It will usually appear as Mijia or Xiaomi followed by a six-digit identifier. Once connected, your scooter's information will be displayed in the app, such as battery level, current firmware version, and temperature.

Step 3: Uploading the Custom Firmware

Now it's time to upload the custom firmware you generated in step 1 to your scooter. In the app, locate the Open Bin button and select the custom firmware file from your Android device. The app will then provide you with a list of firmware elements to flash onto your scooter. Typically, you'll only need to select the BMS and DRV (Driver) components, though this may vary depending on the firmware generator you used.

Press the Flash Selected button and wait for the process to complete. This may take a few minutes, so be patient. Do not disconnect your scooter, turn off the app, or interrupt the process in any way, as this may result in a brick condition – rendering your scooter unusable.

Step 4: Verification

Once the flashing process is complete, restart your scooter and reconnect it to the app. Verify that the firmware version displayed in the app matches the custom firmware you flashed. Now, you can test your scooter and experience its new unlocked potential.

Remember, while it can be exciting to unlock your scooter's full performance, always prioritize safety and obey local laws and regulations. Ride responsibly and enjoy the thrill of your Xiaomi electric scooter!
