White screen on TABS starter


I had a similar post regarding whitescreen on starters here:Whitescreen in ionic2 templates

However, I think the TABS starter is potentially unique.
If I start a project like so: ionic start testing tabs --v2
I can serve it up in a browser no problem with ionic serve
However it will produce the whitescreen if I run:
ionic run android or cordova run android

But - if I set the rootPage as one of the tabs, then the whitescreen is gone. No tabs though…
Notice I did not specify --ts so I will try this out with typescript next.

Hopefully that can point someone who knows more than I ( basically everyone here ) to narrowing down this.
