Thanks Joe, glad to be launching off another thread with ya. I read and have applied again your instructions to a tee. Each new iteration of your data gets better. I do not recall the instruction previously to not even do the second phase of the scan. Interesting. I am trying it and have registered all three fingers this way. So far they are lightening speed entry. Will see what the next few days bring. However, I know if there is some app crash on my system, all bets are off. This is indeed one of the SW bug fixes that is required for an app crash to TID relationship some how. Have a great Thanksgiving . . . .

Thanks, Joe... Hopefully people would actually follow these instructions. Based on my own experience, I would only add that it might take more then one attempt to get a properly registered, reliable print. I only have one reliable fingerprint, which works almost 100% of the time. Two other prints eventually failed, I just have not gotten around to redoing them.

Yeah, the second phase scan skip was a fluke find. Was doing some testing the other day and decided not to go to the end of the training session. I hit back, and was surprised to see the newly registered finger entry...
The picture that's shown with "adjust your grip" depicts the edge of the fingertip, and every time I tried that the first 2 weeks after launch, it failed 100% in no time at all. I guess it just does not like some fingers
The bigest thing I've found the works for me is nailing down a small enough area following the 3 rows, 3 columns I outlined. It's what's given me the best results to date.
Thanks, and to all here as well. Happy Thanksgiving! Maybe we can turn this turkey around

I realize that this thread is to help people get their Touch ID to work. Honestly, WE should not have to do all this to get a feature to work. Apple is letting us all down by not addressing this problem. MAKE THE FEATURE WORK WITHOUT ALL THIS NONSENSE.

Exactly it worked perfectly first 3 weeks. Pretty sure it's not my fingers. Lol. Anyone tried a restore?

I was hoping Joe_Fo was on to something new that I hadn't tried with skipping the second step. Made no difference for me. For some reason I only have lasting success on my right thumb, which has been going strong since early October. Left thumb, no matter how many times I register it or what method I use it still fails after a day or so. At least I've got one finger working, except when it occasionally goes totally brain-dead, as Joe calls it.
Incidentally, it's not just Twitter that causes it. I don't even have Twitter installed and I still get that brain-dead condition about once or twice a week. Last time I experienced it I had just used the Square Register app. When closed out through multitasking TID suddenly started working again.

Had the same issues with my space gray iPhone 5s and it got worse and worse and then it just stopped working so I returned it and now I have a gold iPhone 5s and it works perfectly no such issues with it
Except the home button is making this annoying clicky noise that occurs on the bottom part
Note I don't even push the button I just put my finger on it and you can here it it's annoying and it recently started happening

Thanks Joe. I didnt really seem to get what you mean, I mean, I did follow your instruction but not really sure about what i was doing. Thanks for the video, I make it. The only last problem is how many day this will remain. But, Im truly grateful. Thank you

I had my wife set her 5S print this way since 7.0.2 which is what, about 2 months now, and it still works 100%
I was up to about 1 month and had to redo prints after 7.0.3 install, and then again after 7.0.4. This after initially having TID works for a few hours.

Alberto . . . , I had the exact same issue with clicking on and around the home button. Others have the same issue, as other threads have indicated. I had played around so much with the TID, that I thought this over use had caused the clicking. In any event, I went to the Apple Genious Bar to complain about TID and the clicking, and a new replacement 5s was rendered. I have not had any further problems with clicking after almost a month with the new unit. For what it is worth.
I also have had 98% success again after reregistereing my prints after the App Store app crash. No other crashes since then. Joe's methods work great, but when the software pukes, there is not a thing that can be done to reclaim that success, other than reregistration. We need a SW fix!

My touch I'd works perfectly but the annoying clicking noise is getting on my nerves
I would go to apple store but I don't think they would have an replacement iPhone 5s in gold
And if they do I'm scared of getting one with a rattling issues like I've been reading before because mine has no rattling issues Just the annoying click sound
