Slion 1,184 Posted October 15, 2021 Share Posted October 15, 2021 (edited) On Lineage OS 18.1 I keep getting in situations where the fingerprint sensor won't work until I unlock to phone with PIN. That was somewhat of an issue before but since I changed my case it's annoying to the point where the fingerprint sensor is almost useless. I'm assuming most those issues are related to the fact that the fingerprint sensor gets temporary locked after 5 failed attempts and permanently locked after 20 failed attempts. Though on stock it would show a message on the lock screen telling you your fingerprint sensor is disabled, on LOS I don't get such message. My new case enables easier access to the fingerprint sensor leading to more failed attempts. I'm planning to make a build that fixes this issue the relevant source code is there: https://github.com/LineageOS/android_frameworks_base/blob/7f7fc2562a95be630dbe609e8fb70383dcfada4f/services/core/java/com/android/server/biometrics/fingerprint/FingerprintService.java#L110 I guess I would just set those constants to something high enough so that fingerprint lock won't kick in.
