Upgraded to Ionic 3



I tried to upgrade to ionic 3. Changed my package.json then executed command: npm install. Below is my package.json

  "name": "ionic-hello-world",
  "author": "Ionic Framework",
  "homepage": "http://ionicframework.com/",

On the command ionic cordova run android i am getting this error Error: app-scripts serve unexpectedly failed.

Please let me know how to solve this issue.



There’s a known bug in the 3.0.0 cli that sounds similar. Fixing it is one of the milestones for 3.0.1.


Hi Aaron,

Thank for the help. But I have solved this issue also i have already commented on your github issue.


So how did you solve it? Care to let the other forum users (and Google visitors) know?


I was using ionic cordova run android --livereload -c -s which was giving me this error. But then i tried ionic cordova run android <- this one worked for me.
