Expo standalone APK stuck at splashscreen

The problem is present on Android when i build using expo build:android -t apk, splashscreen stuck forever when opening the app, no errors visible.
When i run the project locally debugging (expo start) i have no errors or issues. I have also run the project with expo start --no-dev --minify and i dont see any error or issue on logs or app.

Already tried:

  • updated CLI and project using npm uninstall -g expo-cli, npm install -g expo-cli, expo upgrade
  • delete node_modules folder and npm install / yarn install after
  • remove splashscreen me deleting the configuration in app.json file → no splashscreen, but stuck on a white screen without any error or other sign.

I have searched other threads and none of them offered any solution.

I also have the same issue, the only thing I remember is that I was running the app locally and reconnected and one of a sudden the app is stuck on the splash screen, no logs, no errors, nothing…
Please if anyone faced the same problem, share your solution and say why …?
I have read so many threads about this problem but none of them gave a direct solution or even a direct problem explanation

check this out: Debugging - Expo Documentation

Actually, the problem is not just in production but in development as well.
and I have tried expo start --no-dev --minify but no difference, the problem still occurs

great. then go ahead and use standard debugging techniques to find the source of the problem! if you need help, see https://expo.fyi/manual-debugging
