1. Use the App Manager to connect a non-OOP app, like System
2. Go to the Inspector tab
3. It is blank
4. You have the following error in the Browser Console:

this.conn.allocID is not a function

Might be related: bug 915444
I tried out the patch from bug 915444 on B2G, but that didn't appear to resolve the issue for me.
The exceptiong really didn't help figuring out this simple issue...
We weren't loading inspector actor in the parent process, so that any app being debugged in parent process wasn't having the inspector tab actor instanciated.

Enable inspector actor in b2g parent process r=paul

It also fix the inspector in the simulator as all apps are still in parent process.
