Fingerprint Scanner Booster

It does what the title says! It boosts Fingerprint sensor's responsiveness by prioritizing its process.
If you use custom roms and those roms have a little delay with unlocking the device using the fingerprint scanner, this should help you.

It does this by using these commands:

Code:
echo $(pgrep fingerprintd) >/dev/cpuset/foreground/boost/tasks
and
Code:
renice -n -20 $(pgrep fingerprintd)

Someone tested it on Redmi note 4? The scanner is responding instantly but the screen wakes up way too slowly. Is this the fix for it?

Hmm, are you sure? I have it working here properly. You might experience little to no effect?
Yes it made things worse actually. I will try your v3. I have goodix scanner

Tried it, still the same issue sadly.


It doesn't change anything it just makes things worse for me (goodix). The screen takes longer to wake up now than without the fix. By longer I mean it takes 4-5seconds for the screen to turn on

So basically just install the latest firmware again? Because the tap to wake and pocket detection are always turned of for me.

I also have a Redmi Note 4x and running Electrablue kernel. The kernel has Fingerprint scanner booster driver as stated by the dev. Will this modeule make any difference or are they just the same feature?

    Can't find it when I search on the magisk manager .
    Does it mean it isn't safe for me to use ?
