yesterday I installed /e/ (20220629.022025 dev-keys)on my OP 8 pro. The fingerprint scanner is not working from the first boot on. When I try to add fingerprints, the scanner starts to light up, so it recognizes the touch, but it actually doesn’t scan the finger. The fingerprint symbol then stays lit until I either on/off the display or I press the home-button.
Is there a way to get the scanner working or is it still a wip-bug?
I use the OP8P as a backup device. Fingerprints haven’t been working since 1.0 came onto the scene. I ended up installing Lineage w/ MicroG on that device and then doing my best to recreate the /e/ suite of applications and settings.
It’s actually not a bad setup, I use Shelter to separate FOSS applications from proprietary ones, and having the Trebuchet launcher makes them much easier to access.
Is it a problem that every OP8 Pro encounters or is it only few people ?
I have seen that some people have this kind of issue after using a boot.img that is not exactly for their model. Since there is different model for regions, maybe it could be the issue on that point ?
I am personnaly form France and have a IN2023 model which I consider to use on eOS (not a huge fan of OOS12 which is losing lot of feature that I appreciated on OOS11)
And I am talking about OnePlus 8 PRO which models supported are :
Other models are not supported
It is because of those different models compatibility that I suggest to confirm which models are concerned with that fingerprint issue. Maybe one of them are using a 100% compatible boot.img so FP cna work on this type but not on others.
Again , that theory is based on other topics I’ve seen which were talking about rooting method for this device, using magisk patch boot.img file to get root or flashing it differently
Just tried to install eOS on my OP8Pro using easy installer and I can confirm that fingerprint is still not working I will revert back to stock ROM then but still disappointed to see that update are still coming while this issue stay active.
