Crashs app when areRemoteUpdatesEnabled = true, Detached App SDK 28

I published an app on Test Flight with areRemoteUpdatesEnabled = false and app run ok.

When i publish areRemoteUpdatesEnabled = true the app don’t open. The app shows native splash screen and crashes.

Hi @victorwads. Could you post your app.json? In the absence of more information, the quickest fix I can suggest is upgrading to the latest SDK version (currently 28). However, there might be other ways to fix this if you provide more information.

I’m Using SDK 28,

Hi @victorwads - sorry about this. We fixed this issue for standalone apps recently, but it looks like the fix did not make it to ExpoKit. We’ll push an update to ExpoKit soon but in the meantime you can fix this by applying this change directly to your ExpoKit source files:
