Great advice. I inherited a React Native 0.59.9 project..tried to work with it as is...could not...tried to upgrade to 0.61.5...could not. Wasted a lot of time. Starting over seemed to be the wrong approach...but it turns out to be the easiest path! The only problem I can see with this approach is that all source file history is lost because you have copied everything into a new project. Perhaps there is some way to save it. Also it would be helpful to list the specific ios and android directories to move to the new project. These were not least to me.
