After updating to the recent release of React Native 0.65, the Android project stopped compiling when the custom dev client was included. These were the build errors that I received:
I then went and looked through the Expo repository on GitHub and found this issue, and subsequently today I noticed that a PR had been merged to fix the issue, but I am unable to find a way to update to a version including the fix.
I realize that it will most likely show up in the next release, and was wondering when it is to be expected as I would have to remove the custom dev client until then in order to keep working on the app. Or perhaps there is a way to use the latest changes already that I have overlooked?
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
I seem to be unable to fully remove the custom client from the Android project as well, despite reversing all the steps taken while following the installation guide. How can I get the Android project working again without sacrificing the (working) IOS dev client?
I’m checking to see if we can publish a new version soon- in the meantime if you need this change ASAP you could always apply the diff with
Thank you! That is exactly what I ended up doing. Works like a charm!
We’re also working on fixing RN 0.65 compatibility for iOS, so we’re going to hold off on releasing until that lands, as well (should be soon).
For now, you can follow @maltehall’s lead and fix it with
patch-package, thanks for your patience!
