Nordbot’s Incorrect FW Speed

Carter recently published new custom firmware for Ninebot G30, titled “No Power Limit(Advanced)”, intended for 36V stock G30. In spite of replacing all relevant information in “params.txt” with irrelevant “NordBot BLD 3192021”, params.json remained untouched, and revealed that the speed is artificially inflated by patching larger wheel diameter.

The same was observed in the “113kg” zip, where the number was inflated all the way to 13″:

Both of these custom firmware ZIPs were not generated by any Nordbot-associated party, but using free custom firmware generator published by scooterhacking group, as indicated in the de-encoded firmware bin file:

Usage of Nordbot’s firmware files is highly discouraged, battery currents are set too high, and can lead to hardware damage.
