  2. run react-native eject
  3. run react-native run-android

Maybe after the previous steps you have executions npm start - --reset-cache

Possibly your port is taken. Try running on different port:

    1. if you are having node version 17 first downgrade its version:-
    You can use n for node's version management.
    
    this is very easy to use.
    $ npm install -g n
    
    then you can show your node version:
    $ node -v
    v16.13.2
    
    2. create an assets folder inside root of the project:-
    project\android\app\src\main\assets
    set folder name should be assets

3. now the final step implement the given code inside the project folder:- 

$cd project 
/project$ react-native bundle --platform android --dev false --entry-file index.js --bundle-output android/app/src/main/assets/index.android.bundle --assets-dest android/app/src/main/res

IMPORTANT - You might have many Virtual devices in your environment. Ensure if you are changing AVD you repeat the setting again.

DEBUG INFORMATION-

Incase you are experiencing above error you have to 1st verify what is running on port 8081

Quickest way to find that is using the following command in terminal

netstat -aon | findstr 8081

if that shows you something it means the port is blocked. if possible get that port unblocked.

Otherwise, you would need to change the port. The process to do that has already been mentioned in the comment above by Naveen Kumar

react-native run-android --port=9001

Ensure 9001 is not used either :)

score:1

By default a tiny JavaScript server called "Metro Server" runs on the port 8081.

You need to make this port available for this Server to start. So,

  1. release the port
  2. close your virtual device
  3. "react-native run-android" again.

How to release the port?

For me this problem started with upgrading react-native. The upgrade was necessary to add 64-bit support.

Before:

Also, One important change that I made for the upgrade was in ../android/build/build.gradle

    ...
    defaultConfig {
        ...
        targetSdkVersion 28
        ...
    }

I had to change the targetSdkVersion from 27 to 28 following warning when I tried to upload the build(.apk) to goole play console. Little did i realise that this was the root cause of the above error for me. Immediatly answers by @tom and @tinmarfrutos made absolute sense.

I have run into similar issue. npx react-native init creates .gitignore file which ignores <project>/android/app/src/debug folder. If you have later cloned this project, this folder would be missing. The solution is simple. In future add this line to the bottom of the .gitignore file.

I just want to add a non-obvious possibility not covered here. I am using @react-native-community/netinfo for detecting network changes, primarily network state. To test network-off state, the WIFI switch (on the emulator) needs to be switched off. This also effectively cuts off the bridge between the emulator and the debug environment. I had not re-enabled WIFI after my tests since i was away from the computer and promptly forgot about it when i got back.

There is a possibility that this could be the case for somebody else as well and worth checking before taking any other drastic steps.

I have also faced this issue. I resolved this following step.

Check android sdk path in Environment Veritable.

replace sharedBlacklist as below code segment,

var sharedBlacklist = [
  /node_modules[\/\\]react[\/\\]dist[\/\\].*/,
  /website\/node_modules\/.*/,
  /heapCapture\/bundle\.js/,
  /.*\/__tests__\/.*/
];

Apparently, none of the answers fixed the issue for me. I was able to run the react-native app on emulator but the same code (even when the Server was running), gave me this error when running the app on the device.

I was able to resolve it by executing the following command in the terminal:

adb reverse tcp:8081 tcp:8081

My solution to this is as below:

Start Metro server

$ react-native start

Start Android

$ react-native run-android

If see errors saying "port 8081 already in use", then you can kill that process and rerun

$ react-native start

Hey guys a combination of 2 awnsers solved my problem. It was port related.

adb reverse tcp:8088 tcp:8088

I've encountered the same issue while following the React Native tutorial (developing on Linux and targeting Android).

This issue helped me resolve the problem in following steps. Run following commands in the below sequence:

  1. (in project directory) mkdir android/app/src/main/assets
  2. react-native bundle --platform android --dev false --entry-file index.js --bundle-output android/app/src/main/assets/index.android.bundle --assets-dest android/app/src/main/res
  3. react-native run-android

You can automate the above steps by placing them in scripts part of package.json like this:

"android-linux": "react-native bundle --platform android --dev false --entry-file index.js --bundle-output android/app/src/main/assets/index.android.bundle --assets-dest android/app/src/main/res && react-native run-android"

[Quick Answer]

After try to solve this problem in my workspace I found a solution.

This error is because there are a problem with Metro using some combinations of NPM and Node version.

You have 2 alternatives:

  • Alternative 1: Try to update or downgrade npm and node version.
  • Alternative 2: Go to this file: \node_modules\metro-config\src\defaults\blacklist.js and change this code:

    var sharedBlacklist = [
      /node_modules[/\\]react[/\\]dist[/\\].*/,
      /website\/node_modules\/.*/,
      /heapCapture\/bundle\.js/,
      /.*\/__tests__\/.*/
    ];
    

    and change to this:

    var sharedBlacklist = [
      /node_modules[\/\\]react[\/\\]dist[\/\\].*/,
      /website\/node_modules\/.*/,
      /heapCapture\/bundle\.js/,
      /.*\/__tests__\/.*/
    ];
    

    Please note that if you run an npm install or a yarn install you need to change the code again.

First do steps 4 and 5 then you can run your project. If you do not get the result (with steps 4 and 5) do the following steps

1- Try to downgrade your Node version (current version is 12.13.1)

  choco uninstall nodejs
  choco install nodejs --version 12.8

2- Add the path of npm module (C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\npm) to system variables instead of user variables

3- Install react native globally by using command

  npm install -g react-native-cli

4- Go to the root of your project directory and run the following command :

  react-native start

5- Open another terminal in the root of your project and run the following command :

For me this error was caused by an upgrade of react-native

Starting with Android 9.0 (API level 28), cleartext support is disabled by default.

If you check out the upgrade diff you need to create a debug manifest android/app/src/debug/AndroidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

If you have everything correctly configured then try this:

adb reverse tcp:8081 tcp:8081

Why?

When the RN packager is running, there is an active web server accessible in your browser at 127.0.0.1:8081. It's from this server that the JS bundle for your application is served and refreshed as you make changes. Without the reverse proxy, your phone wouldn't be able to connect to that address.

These steps really help me:

Step 1: Create a directory in android/app/src/main/assets

Linux command: mkdir android/app/src/main/assets

Step 2: Rename index.android.js (in root directory) to index.js (Maybe there is an index.js file in which case you do not need to rename it) then run the following command:

react-native bundle --platform android --dev false --entry-file index.js --bundle-output android/app/src/main/assets/index.android.bundle --assets-dest android/app/src/main/res

Step 3: Build your APK: react-native run-android

Please use index.js in latest version.
