SOLVED Ota-12 Teleports launcher bar Icon always Shows unread messages
yes it happens after the OTA-12 update.
I did the following to fix it:
- simple reboot
- unpin / repin
- unpin / reboot / repin
but nothing works
After rebooting all looks good, but if you start the App, the issue is there

Maybe an archived chat with unread messages?
If there are unread messages they are being reported by the underlying tdlib component which is a 3rd party library we directly use from upstream Telegram developers. TELEports just sums up what it gets from it, we cannot really do much about it. As @AppLee said it might be an archived chat that you cannot see on TELEports right now - did you compare with the desktop app, whats shown there?
Another case is when you would leave a conversation (group, chat) with unread messages, they might get stuck there. Did you do this?
I am using TELEports quite heavily but never ran into this issue. If you want to go the easier way, use the UT tweak tool and delete all app data, then re-register the device and see again if you hit those unreads.
The Desktop App shows none unread messages only the OPO, the issue occures directly after I did the OTA-12 update.
re-register the device and using the UT Tweak Tool didn#t help
maybe I've left a conversation or a group with unread messages, don't know

Another data point: I see two (or more) unread on my M10, but none on N5 or desktop.
@Flohack Any useful investigating I can do?
@alan_g we store unread message counters in a database in the teleports data directory: ~/.local/share/teleports.ubports/teleports.ubports/auxdb/auxdb.sqlite. Would be interesting to see if that really has that number in it, there is a column in the table chatlist_map called unread_messages. And also, if this column is set to 0 for all entries, if the problem comes back.
HI, I got it!
- Copied the auxdb.sqlite to my PC
- Opened it with SqliteBrowser
- and set 3 Values (with 5, 2 and 2 messages) in the unread_messages column to 0
- copied the auxdb.sqlite back to my OPO
and now it works!!
@Torkel67 that would tell me you are no longer member of these chats, can it be? Did you exit chats or conversations recently? I can see now we need to improve the handling in this case.
@Torkel67 Thank you it worked for me too (didn't left any chat recently).
@Flohack ervey Chat, Group or Channel I was in before manipulating the DB is still there, if you mean that!
And of course I frequently add channels or groups to check out if they fit my needs and exit them if not, don't careing about unread messages in it.
