Android standalone builds crash after fresh installation

  1. SDK Version: 36
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android 9, SGS 9+

When my users install my app from the app store, the app crashes with the following output:

java.lang.RuntimeException: Expo encountered a fatal error: Unexpected end of script

no stack
  at host.exp.exponent.experience.BaseExperienceActivity$2.run (BaseExperienceActivity.java:206)

When they launch it a second time, it works.

edit: this seems to be https://github.com/expo/expo/issues/6523

Hi, we’re experiencing a similar problem after releasing an update with expo v36.0.0, we’re trying to release a patch with v36.0.2 right now. Have you managed to fix it or find any more info?

I can’t quite remember what I did, but I rebuilt it again and it seemed to work. I also installed sentry.io to catch JS error in production.

I don’t think this is the “dark mode” issue. That seems to cause errors like the following:

Fatal Exception: java.lang.RuntimeException
Expo encountered a fatal error: Error while updating property 'width' in shadow node of type: RCTView

Whereas this one looks like an incomplete JavaScript bundle:

java.lang.RuntimeException: Expo encountered a fatal error: Unexpected end of script

I think this might be more relevant:

By the way a pull request has been merged to fix the dark mode related crash:
