Re: Fingerprint reader unusable after update - Xperia 1

I haven't used my X1 yet but I will post here once I update the firmware and use the FPS. Hopefully it is reliable like my Moto Droid Z Force.

Re: Fingerprint scanner

Update your firmware, delete your prints and try again. Mine works almost flawlessly and fast!

Re: Fingerprint scanner

When your surface scanned is too large the fingerprint scanner may have problems recognising.

Delete and scan all over.

Do the most used finger twice.

Re: Fingerprint reader unusable after update - Xperia 1

Delete all previous fingerprints. 

Sensor works better when you scan a small area.

Have 2 fingerprint readings for the same finger.

Report back please of this helped you.

Re: Fingerprint reader unusable after update - Xperia 1

FPS works virtually flawlessly. I use my right thumb and right index finger to login and loaded both fingers twice each based on one member's reccomendation. Not sure if it helps the sensor with additional data but it sure can't hurt and it works very well. 

 

If any of your X1's FPS works half the time or less, there's something clearly wrong.

Re: Fingerprint reader unusable after update - Xperia 1

Same here. I got two Xperia 1s a purple for wife and black for me. Finger print reader has become unresponsive after latest update. I think mods need to pin this. I need finger print recognition so I don't need to remember 100s of digits to do banking on my phone.
