STR

2. Setup the following test app attached
3. Try to push the app to your device with remote debugging enabled

Actual

No remote debugging prompt appears. The FxOS simulator indicates that the connection timed out.

Test App
When you say "Install the Firefox OS simulator" do you mean you've installed version 4 of the Simulator add-on[1]?  If so, Simulator 4 has not been tested with and likely does not work with Firefox OS 1.2.

Instead, you can use the App Manager[2] which is in Firefox 26+.

Also, I tried to install your app via the App Manager, but I got a syntax error on the manifest file.  Looks like it has a trailing comma in the "permissions" field.  After fixing that, I was able to install your app to the device.
