My fingerprint scanner stoped working after updating my phone 2.3.4.
System version: 4.5.91. MB860.ATT.en.US
Baseband: N_01.77.40P
I'm not an AT&T user I'm using Orange Romania, my device is unlocked.
I tried to clear my Fingerprint sensor from Storage Clear Data... At first it worked but i couldn't make my first scan to defyine my fingerptints... I got the error with to short swipe or something like that, and afer i tried several times it stopped scanning. Now when i swipe my fingerprint it doesen't do anything. I had read all the threads and it seems like i found a solution on http://http://forum.xda-developers.c...cussionid=1252 but i don't understand what is CWM4 and i can't find any information.
Can you tell me what is CWM4 and if i don't already have it where i could find it and what to do with it?

Clockwork
I've read that thread and NOOB Guide or some thread for Noob's, ment to explain somethings, but I still don't know how to enter in CWM ... and i don't know if that mod it's instaled on my phone. If i need to install please tell me how.

CWM
I believe you're going to need to root your device and unlock your bootloader before you start dealing with custom recoveries (CWM is one - it stands for ClockWorkMod recovery). Typically you enter recovery mode on an Atrix by holding volume-down while the phone turns on, and then pressing volume-up to cycle through the white text that appears on the top of the screen. The power button then enters recovery mode.

Really, you've got a bit of searching and reading to do if this is the path you're going to take to fix your device. Probably 2-4 hours if you're starting from scratch and learning as you go.

It is worth it... when you're done, not only will your FP be fixed, but you'll be able to leave that awful stock ROM for something faster, more capable, more elegant.

I would suggest for this to reboot your phone and as soon as it boots up go to fingerprint scanner and set ur fingerprint. This has worked for me for quite a few times.

I had same issue. I did several reboot but not worked. Finally, I cleaned the finger print sensor with some volatile liquid (like after shave or nail polish remover) after switching off my cell phone and it worked like as before. It might be helpful for others with same difficulty.

Thanks
