hi guys, i am new here, i am facing weird problem about touchID, two days back i updated cydia tweaks (PANGU 9.0.x UNTETHER, BYA REPO ICONS, XMODGAMES, CYDOWN -> FROM BYA REPO, SMOOTHCURSOR), after that touchID is not working properly...

i only have installed "VIRTUAL HOME 8 n 9" touchID related tweak...

I would start by deleting any apps that you you have installed or updated to the day before the problem started. If you open Cydia and tap on installed(at the bottom) and then tap on recent(top right) it will give you a list of tweaks that you installed and updated by date.

Downgrade/uninstall tweaks that you stated you updated the other day

Only one cydia tweak is downgradable (pangu 9.0.x untethered), rest of all are removeable, and i do so ...
But one tweak is i didnt get while removing, it says "this operation involves the removal of one or more packages that are required for the continued operation of either Cydia or iOS. If you continue, you may not be able to use cydia to reapir any damage."

I don't recognise that but I'm sure someone will be along in a bit that does. Have you used any dodgy repos to get free paid apps?

Uninstall cydia substrate. After it uninstalls all your tweaks, see if your Touch ID is working

Don't know if you fixed this issue, but I found that my Touch ID problems went away after clearing the RAM on my iPhone 6.
