    Has anyone noticed any inconsistencies with their TouchID post-jailbreak? I've noticed that sometimes when i wake up my phone it will act like it had just booted up and require a password or will not recognize my fingerprints. Doesn't happen all the time but happens enough to be noticeable.

    I have seen this same issue. No rhyme or reason. I have to enter my passcode to get in.

    I haven't had a single problem with touchid after j/b. What other "tweaks" do you have installed that might be causing the issue?

    I have:

    MyWi
    ClassicDock
    Colorbadges
    Winterboard
    Iconomatic
    Hideme8

    I have not had any problems. For better hep you should include Pangu version, Cydia version, and which iPhone/ios.

    No problems here either...must be a tweak you have installed. I found issues with the TouchID when I had Activator installed and took it off, now it's back to normal.

    Jailbroken with Pangu version 1.1.0, Cydia at 1.1.16 and iOS 8.1 on an iPhone 6 128GB.

    Tweaks installed:

    Actif
    Activator
    CCSettings for iOS 8
    Flex 2
    iFile
    Infinidock
    MyWi 8
    Nested Folders (iOS 8)
    NoSlowAnimations
    Pandora Skips

    Had Bootloop issues with Winterboard that couldn't be resolved so i've uninstalled that.

    I had those issues with Touch ID forcing a password on stock 8.1 with the Plus. On another note, if Winterboard causes boot loops, whatever other theme apps work well on 8.1?

    I do know that iconomatic and Winterboard haven't been updated for iOS 8.

    I'd check to make sure you're using the correct versions of all your tweaks based on this list: https://docs.zoho.com/sheet/published.do?rid=z1v909ff833ece6824400b4d4095ac3a277ac

    Also, make sure Actif is compatible and if you have anything setup using active, make sure its not the problem. Also, check Flex2 to make sure you got the correct version from the correct repo.
