Yes all Genesis themes work with WP 3.5.1, as you can see the demo is working fine – http://demo.appfinite.com/ally/ and the editor is working fine as well.
I’m not sure why your editor isn’t working, but the Ally theme itself won’t affect this part of WordPress. There isn’t anything within the child theme that would prevent it from working.
