Hello Friends:

This method is Only for MOTO G5S Montana XT-179x @XT-1799-2 i am not sure
please don't try at any Other Device and if you stuck anywhere ask anytime...

Here is tested fix for Fingerprint Sensor Activation in Custom Oreo 8.1 and PIE 9.0 ROMs Thanks to @JarlPenguin

Follow the steps Below:

For Oreo 8.1 Custom ROMs:
1: Flash your favorite Oreo 8.1 Custom ROM (Set Up Your ROM)
2: Download file from the Link here: https://mega.nz/#!Az5EBYxC!_fqx-2iHD...NDOcYjNLJnE-d4
3: Extract the Folder anywhere in PC
4: Connect your Phone in Bootloader mode with PC
5: Open Extracted Folder and just Run "Flash downgrade.bat"
6: Wait to end process and than Start Phone with power Button.
Your Fingerprint Must show in Security and Location setting, add fingers and Enjoy (I have tested at XT-1794 with PE Oreo)

For PIE 9.0 Custom ROMs:
1: Flash your favorite Oreo 9.0 Custom ROM (Set Up Your ROM)
2: Download file from the Link here: https://mega.nz/#!w3xEBCBb!MXvDbcxWY...IPJ6wNI9JGFkGY
3: Extract the Folder anywhere in PC
4: Connect your Phone in Bootloader mode with PC
5: Open Extracted Folder and just Run "Flash downgrade.bat"
6: Wait to end process and than Start Phone with power Button.
Your Fingerprint Must show in Security and Location setting, add fingers and Enjoy (I have tested at XT-1794 with PE PIE

Xt1799-2 will only be able to flash Oreo ROMs for fingerprint because it isn't updated to Oreo/Oreo firmware isn't in the mirrors so we can't access the fingerprint driver files
