That's strange. I've seen this issue in some of the early builds of the rom, but I believe formatting data solved it. Does FP work if you reinstall LOS without installing GApps? You could have success with a different distribution of GApps. (There are a few options in the GApps section.) Sometimes GApps overwrites features that are already present in the rom, and every so often it breaks things. One such example is that if you install NikGapps-stock or the NikGApps pixel launcher addon package without disabling "QuickAccessWallet" via a configuration file (more on this configuration file here,) you won't be able to access your cards from the Power menu.Ok so I'm about a week in, the fingerprint scanner is just, gone. It's not that it isn't reading, it's just not an option. The fingerprint scanner is completely gone from the system settings, any attempt to communicate with it fail immediately. it just, disapeared from the software. Restarting or factory reseting didn't do anything, it's still gone.
Edit: Gonna try and go through recover to update then reflash if needed, pain
Edit 2: reflashed, still gone
Edit to add: I've also seen people's FP just stop working, even in stock. Sometimes the hardware just goes bad.
