I have also lost fingerprint in my phone, i have used OFP FLASH to flash it to EU after unlocking (it was MEA and i needed EUX region).
is there any way to restore the fingerprints? i have tried flashing full OTA again, and also after rooting tried the Magisk method that @Terrorigel97 has suggested, not working.
on A18 right now. any hope for fingerprint?

Same here. Mine is running global ROM on china version.

I tried so many modules in Magisk and none of them are working:

Magisk official/Magisk-Delta + shamiko + saftynet fix or Riru Core + Riru integrity fix + magisk colorOS + GPay SQLite Fix...

i have done it the most important thing is you are stock so you just have everything clean then you root with magisk 25.2 i use magisk delta 25.2 because of the magisk hide for banking apps then you should be able to set up fingerprints

Is it possible that I should have backup some of the images (such as persist) before they get overwritten, and by using the ofp flash I have somehow deleted it?

OFP Flash tool apparently overwrites persist.img, the only solution I found after using the flash tool was to buy the calibration rubber and calibrate it again myself.

I am curious to ask if you had widevine L1 before and after flashing persist.img? some people are claiming the widevine L1 key is stored in that partition.
