    Hi, thanks for sharing it.

    I found something weird here. Every time my phone reboots, it shows the following message when I try to unlock it with my fingers: “Fingerprint hardware not available”.

    I reconfigure it, put my fingers again in the security configuration a it came back to work, but I have to do this Every time I reboot the phone.

    Do you have any clue about it?

    Thanks
