Hi Expo

But android we had errors, and we don’t know how to find and fix.

Somehow there is a file called src_assets_noimage.jpg and in addition there’s one called src_assets_noimage.png. Off hand I don’t know where these would be coming from.

Maybe see if you can find them in your node_modules. e.g. if you’re running macOS or Linux:

% find node_modules -type f -name 'src_assets_noimage.[jp][pn]g' -print

Also, do you have an android directory in the root of your project? If so, do you have these files in there?

Our source has two asset file below
Root cause here, and we don’t know :sweat_smile:

Thanks for your support
