Ok, so loads of people have faced this problem. This guide will help you to make the home button/fps work again!

Do the fingerprint sensor test first
  • Dial *#808#
  • A menu will appear
  • Select Finger print test
  • Select Finger Print auto test
  • If it says pass, you already have a working sensor
  • Reboot the phone to make it work again
  • If it says fail, follow the given methods!

Method 1
  1. Put the phone on charging
  2. Note: Do not remove the charging cable during the whole procedure
  3. Go to Settings>Apps>All
  4. Find com.oneplus.fingerprints.service
  5. Select Clear Cache
  6. Select Force Stop
  7. Press the Power button for 10 seconds until the phone is completely off
  8. Switch it on normally
  9. Check if it works or not!

Method 2
  1. Press the power button to bring up the reboot menu
  2. Long press on Power Off option
  3. Reboot to Safe Mode will appear
  4. Click ok and let it reboot
  5. Check home button if it works or not
  6. Reboot normally
  7. Tip: Try doing method 1 in method 2 when in safe mode

Method 3 <<Tested working by me
  1. Drain the battery to 0%
  2. When the phone switches off, keep pressing the power button and starting it
  3. Keep doing Step 2 for 20 times
  4. This is for draining the left over battery completely
  5. Now, charge the phone to 100% keeping it switched off
  6. Remember: Charge to 100% Works only when it is fully charged
  7. After it says "OK" and it is fully charged, keeping the charging cable in, press the power button to boot the phone
  8. Remember: DO NOT TAKE OFF THE CHARGING CABLE HERE
  9. Enable the hardware buttons from settings if you have turned them off if you have been using software buttons (Settings>Buttons)
  10. Check if the home button and fingerprint sensor works

Method 4
  1. Clean flash OOS Stock version 2.0
  2. Check if the home button works now

Best of luck!

Will keep this in bookmarks, because as a regular thing, this device should break my home button too.

Thanks so much buddy.

For me none of the methods worked.

I presed the sensor arround until somehow changed to homescreen guess it was a bad contact or ground issue but its been working flawless since yesterday

I should mention that there is a shortcut rather than having to dial the number, you can make a shortcut with any activity launcher, in fact Nova launcher for instance can do that natively.

Wow I should have came across this thread before!
I had this issue before, but I fixed this issue with a clean install to OOS 2.2.0 myself.

Overall, nice post OP!

Unfortunately, neither of the 4 methods works for me.

*edit: What I did, I reformatted all data wiped all cache. Installed the latest CM13/picogapps. BAM! it's working again!
