    I was using CM 14.1, and there the fingerprint scanner is always on - you can you just tap it and unlock. But on MIUI rom, I need to actually click the button to unlock. Is there a solution for this?

    Yes it is, but dunno how battery life looks like with it

    Flash two files
    1 - init
    2 - fingersensor

    hello my mi5 is on 7.1.20 all i have to do is go to /sys/devices/soc/
    look for a folder called soc:fpc_fpc1020 inside there is a file called enable_wakeup
    change the value to 1 and it will work
    you need root and an app to get access to the file system of the phone
    the only thing that happens is every time you reboot you phone you have to do all the process again

    hope that can help
