I just found out that I can unlock my device by swiping from the bottom upwards and it is much recognizable by the scanner. I don't know if it is a dumb idea but I just would like to share.

Did you set it up to read from top to bottom, not bottom to top?

I registered my thumb like the screen showed, after seeing this I tried backwards and it works. So I tried sideways it worked, and sideways in reverse works, go figure!

Set it up normally, top to bottom. I just find it out by accident that you can unlock it the reverse way. Also register your thumb by using the inter-phalangeal joint of your thumb. That makes swiping to unlock easier and less error prone. I wish I could embed video here so I can show you guys

Correct! As long the sensor recognize the pattern of your print it doesn't matter which way you swipe.
