Could not load app - signed APK in app store, internal testing, detached app

#1

Hi,

I am trying to distribute my app on Google Play. Its a detached app. I used Android Studio to generate the signed apk. But when I open the app from the store it says "Could not load app."

I also tried:
./gradlew assembleRelease

I followed:

I installed the apk to test locally with the same “Could not load app.”
./adb install ~/workspace/github/underwriter-bot-mobile/android/app/build/outputs/apk/app-prod-release.apk

Expo SDK 26.

build.gradle

compileSdkVersion 26
  buildToolsVersion '26.0.1'

  defaultConfig {
    targetSdkVersion 25

Issue:

It works on dev mode.

Here is the adb log:

I also saw this note:

Note: Make sure gradle.properties does not include org.gradle.configureondemand=true as that will make release build skip bundling JS and assets into the APK.

so I removed this from gradle.properties:

org.gradle.configureondemand=false

I resolved this issue. I had switched Expo accounts and had to go into my native android code and replace the old account with the new one.

@darkwata why we need to change the account?

I switched Expo accounts because I published my app on my personal account then I wanted to publish it on a new company Expo account. This is probably not the case for you.
