The only tweak that is related is Activator, although I am NOT using Activator to do anything with the Touch ID.No issues here with 2 jailbroken 5s. Are you using any touch id tweaks?
I didn't even get a couple weeks out of it and finally gave up about 3 weeks ago. I was lucky to get 7 days and in those 7 days I'd be about 50% or worse in unlocking the phone. It's really odd because BioTouch never fails unless I use a print that's not on the device.I have a 5S, and so do four other people that I know (some closer than others...).
We all have the same issue: After scanning your prints, everything is perfect and the device gets unlocked with the first attempt. But after two weeks or so, the thing starts to fail. Solution seems to be erasing prints and re-scanning. Perfect again.
It's like if the "learning process" Apple talked about didn't help at all but **** it up instead.
I found they also SEVERELY screwed up my touch ID. Virtual home was awful.Yea when I had activator installed and used the touch is as a gesture my touch I'd barely worked. So I restored and haven't done that and it's been good since. I'll be refrainf from touch id tweaks for now.
Still having issues? Have you tried restoring and re jail breaking?I found they also SEVERELY screwed up my touch ID. Virtual home was awful.
This time around, I haven't used any touch ID tweaks and I'm still having issues.
I've since reinstalled Activator and so far so good.
Hmmm...Very interesting. I wonder if BioProtect screwes with Apples ridiculous "learning" algorithm? It would seem that the learning algorithm is the culprit.Before the jailbreak. I would have problems with the touchid. After the jailbreak for some odd reason I haven't had a problem yet. I have bio protect plus activator. Setup it all detects my finger print fine. Unlocking my phone with touch Id is flawless too.
Woke up with TouchID completely dead. Had to rescan prints. I'll leave Activator off for awhile and see how it goes.
Would be great if we could deactivate Apples TouchID learning algorithm somehow.
Reboots do nothing. I haven't been able to leave my phone unjaulbroken long enough to know. #So reboots don't change anything? Did you have these problems before jailbreaking?
This gives me some hope. Hopefully Apple has its best and brightest working out a fix.I think it has something to do with
the weather...and how dry your prints are...I know that if my hands are really dry the id won't work..this was with non jb and jb...summer time I didn't have any issues...winter it seems to be hot and miss at times.
Just my opinion
