Android Emulator Infinite Blue Spinner

Pretty new to expo and it’s been great so far, except for this one issue. I’m emulating a pixel 3 device on my windows machine, and performing manual reloads usual leads to the infinite blue spinner of death. Sadly there are no error logs on the expo server when this happens (which is roughly 50% of the time). IPhone and web don’t have this issue.

I’ve tested this behavior by creating a brand new expo project with “expo init” and then repeatedly reloading. Once the spinner shows up, ctrl+M no longer works so I can’t access the dev menu either, meaning I have to force close the program in order to get the app running again.

I found this github issue:
But it seems to have been left unresolved.
