Telegram trouble

Hi all, i have a Jolla One phone. It’s an oldie but still goodie. I use Telegram on Sailfish OS through Android compatibility layer of course and have one re-occurring problem:

Sometimes when i try to send a video file (picking it from the Gallery of Sailfish), the operation crashes Telegram. No biggie but: it won’t launch again. I have to restart the phone and retry the launch. Does launch yet then occurrs the MAIN problem: Telegram is attempting to send the video infinitely every time i try to get to Telegram. The file sending DOES NOT when i go to another device and login to Telegram. Same thing with the desktop version. So i cannot remove the video file sending.

I have also tried removing Telegram’s cache through file manager.

I cannot additionally re-install from ApkPure or Aptoide either: tapping does nothing. I have to download an apk file from Telegram’s site or ApkPure (or Aptoide) and install manually. Only then i can get to use Telegram again :confused:

Is there anything to do about this issue? To remove the “send queue” or is some update coming to Alien Dalvik or so?


Hello Heidi, instead of the Android version you could try to install with openrepos (search the net) a client app. Thebootroo made Telegra’me, this works well. And recently Fernschreiber was made. This is in development but also useful. I had no problems with both of them

In the Android App Settings there is a button to clear App cache, maybe this works better than deleting the folder in file manager.

Clear cache didn’t help, but below it the “Clear data” did! (but reverted to clean state) so it’s a bit of a two edged sword. Sometimes Telegram indeed does not crash sending video file.

Wow this i got to check out, thanks!

There is a new client coming: Yottagram, with more features. Next week we can expect it in Storeman .

while grate, we have then 4 non-complete telegram clients.
would love if they would join forces 1 or 2 more complete clients would be great


Welcome to FOSS :stuck_out_tongue:


At least the developper of Yottagram boasts on twitter about the feature-richness of his client, so maybe we can expect a complete implementation.

Also the developper of Fernschreiber is well-known for quality apps and he as well promises more features to come.


… and that is exactly something which i do not like that much since i have switched to linux at home …

just find a nice music player for linux … all ugly, bad ux and not feature complete … especially these fruits :slight_smile:

Were can I get info of these telegram clients for Sailfish? search for telegra’me, fernschreiber and yottagram
