I can't switch into hardmode but I can break altars and no hollow spawned

I killed WoF (wall of flesh) 5 times already and it won’t let me enter hardmode.

I get the pwnhammer, I can destroy altars, but I don’t get new ores spawning from destroying the altars and the hollow didn’t spawn in my world after beating WoF. Is this a bug or something?

    From the Terraria Wiki:

    The first three Demon Altars destroyed will trigger the creation of
    three new Ores, in the following order:

    The first destroyed Demon Altar or Crimson Altar will trigger the
    creation of Cobalt Ore or Palladium Ore. The second destroyed Demon
    Altar or Crimson Altar will trigger the creation of Mythril Ore or
    Orichalcum Ore. The third destroyed Demon Altar or Crimson Altar will
    trigger the creation of Adamantite Ore or Titanium Ore.

    Did you destroy at least 3? It also says that Hallow and Crimson/Corruption should spawn upon its death, not the altars. If that’s not the case, i would assume it is a bug yes.

    Else see this post from someone with a similar issue on reddit.

    Your save is likely to have been corrupted, either by tampering or just regular gameplay. Thousands of people have issues with this.

    I would recommend starting a new world and going on ; from there you should keep your character. Any further gameplay might corrupt your character save.

    This is just my opinion based on hours of reddit posts.

    I THINK that is only a glitch for mobile, but I will try and look into those errors and tell you when I get it. =)
