Ionic Deploy $ionicDeploy.load(); doesn't get the app to call onDeviceReady or the run block

I have an Ionic v1 app with ionic deploy. When my app starts up in the block I have some code checking for a snapshot.

    $ionicDeploy.check().then(function (snapshotAvailable) {
        if (snapshotAvailable) {
            $ () {
                return $ionicDeploy.extract().then(function() {
                        title: 'Update Available',
                        subTitle: 'An update was just downloaded. Would you like to restart your app to use the latest features?',
                        buttons: [
                                text: 'Cancel'
                                text: 'Restart',
                                onTap: function(e) {
                                    $ionicDeploy.load(); //no code past here will be executed

After the app applies the snapshot, it applies ionicCacheBuster to all of the calls. settings.controller.js?ionicCachebuster=67772:644 I don’t know why it does this and I also notice that my app is slower than if I just type ionic run android into the command line.

Furthermore, when I call $ionicDeploy.load(); the onDeviceReady and run block of the app is not called. It just goes right to the home page. How can I get it to fully reload the app?
