Question re: Android ChEVrolet App, Bolt battery "fix", and still showing "recall"

I have one of those 2017 Bolts that were identified requiring recall due to battery.

When the recall was first announced in October 2020, I took my car into a dealership, and after bringing the recall to their attention, they applied the temporary fix. When I left the dealership, the next day my Chevrolet app still showed that my car needed a recall due to the battery.

Now, March 2021, the Bolt started to throw code U1510. If I cleared it, it would come back on every time I started the car. So, April 2021 - I took it back to the dealership, addressed that (which ended up being a short in a wire to some shutter component for the battery) and requested that they reapply the recall software update again. The thought was that it did not update some database and maybe redoing it would reset the display of the message that it requires a recall.

So... I told you all that to say this: Reapplying the software "fix" did not remove the recall message from the app.

QUESTION: Is that the expected behavior? For those who have had the temporary fix applied, does your app still show that there is a recall?

You are 11 days late with this post. Made me chuckle though. ;)
I have NO idea what that means... was that an answer to a different thread?
No. It means I thought your post was an April fools joke. Why in the world would you care what the ridiculously incompetent app says?
I have a 2017 $42,000.00 car with less than 20,000 miles that is only providing 90% capability of what I had purchased. And to add insult to injury, the dealership offered me $16,100 as a trade in this week.

So, if that is an April Fools joke, I don't get it.
Yeah. My dentist just bought a brand new Bolt for that.

The battery problem is a pain. I just don't understand why you thought the fact that the app couldn't figure out that you had had the patch was a concern. Most days the app can't figure out how many miles are on your car.
