ios.loadJSInBackgroundExperimental not working for detached project

SDK 23

It looks like as of SDK 21 (when Loading screen progress in development feature was announced), the app remains on the splash screen for ~10 seconds as it is “downloading javascript bundle”, and the ios.loadJSInBackgroundExperimental flag doesn’t seem to affect anything. This behavior is also seen in production, although, the status text does not appear.

Detached projects currently don’t embed JS and always load from the server, so loading the JS in the background wouldn’t affect the performance of loading your project. We’d like to make this behavior more consistent but currently that’s one of the differences with detached projects.
