Hello,

If someone has news about hacking the COM-BOX (Black box behind the green cover on the front of the scooter) of the Lime Gen3, please post it here. We know that the box has a green diag connector, but it seems nobody knows how to use this connector. I think we should take research in finding out how to get in communication with the COM-BOX, if we can configure the box, it would be eventually possible to unlock/lock the personal Lime Scooter over a self written APP.

I spent today playing with a black box, and have found a little bit of info that hasn't been posted yet. The USB interface that is part of the unused debug connector is a Qualcomm qdl interface for the modem chip that the controller is based on. It theoretically can be used to dump the contents of the eMMC on the device, but I was unsuccessful in doing so. I think I may have more success on a Linux device so tomorrow I'll hook it up to my work machine. If anyone else wants to take a crack at it the protocol is Qualcomm Sahara and the device ID is 05c6
