I woke up yesterday morning and my PIN number was not accepted by my phone. I haven't used but 3 since I have had my phone.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Could this have coincided with the 220.127.116.11 Fingerprint update? I've seen a few folks here & there on the web saying that their PIN would no longer work after receiving that update.
I'm still looking into all this before accepting the update myself, to see if it's solved. So far the only suggestion I've seen is restarting the phone. Then if that didn't work, clearing the "cache partition" which has to be done from one of the boot menus (there are video tutorials around on how to do that). There were no replies to say if those suggestions worked or not.
If either of those works, let us know.
(Also, the S22 Ultras, if I remember right, got an update of their own to fix this very issue, so if you ever get a notification to update Fingerprints to 18.104.22.168, that would be the fix. Hopefully Samsung will notice that the problem is happening in other phone models, if that's the case here...)
