Development build does not connect to metro bundler


I want to contribute, but I am having trouble connecting my phone to my development build. I have made some native changes in the bare-expo app, used eas build to create a development build. After starting the bare-expo client with expo start --dev-client i tried to access the app using my camera. It opens up the downloaded and built app, but it throws an error that there is no bundler present. I am connected to the same wifi on my phone as the bundler.

I have set the eas.json file to include the developmentClient flag to true.

Am I missing something here?
