Android "build in progress" hangs -- option to cancel?

I started an Android build with “$ exp build:android” ~12 hrs ago.

Expo replied that my app.json file had an issue (a typo in a property), but started building anyways.

I fixed the typo but I’ve been unable to start another build – “Cannot start new build, as there is a build in progress”. Is there a way to cancel the current, doomed, build?

what is the build id?

Thanks for coming back to me @notbrent

I don’t know the ID. The build was started yesterday and the session in which it was started is no more. Can I somehow extract the ID or maybe give you some other info?

I’ve an iOS build that is in process for several hours.
The dashboard ‘Build Logs’ screen has only a spinning Expo logo, and the ‘Cancel’ button is inactive.
Can you check if this is a hung process situation?

my build id is:
