I am working on a MIPS binary: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, MIPS, MIPS-II version 1 (SYSV), statically linked, for GNU/Linux 2.6.32, BuildID[sha1]=76438e9ed749bcfc6e191e548da153d0d3b3ee28, not stripped . IDA Pro 6.95 (32 bit) disassembles the file pretty well, yet the decompiler gives up: Sorry, the current file is not decompilable. Doesn't IDA Pro have decompilation support for MIPS?

    No, it doesn't. See hex-rays.com/products/decompiler

  • JEB 2.3 supports MIPS decompilation, see pnfsoftware.com/jeb2/mips (disclaimer: I am the principal author of JEB)

No, IDA version 6.95 doesn't support it. See hex-rays.com/products/decompiler for more details. Regarding other news and features see decompiler news page.

Update (12/3/2020): The original answer was written ~2017, and since then IDA added MIPS decompiler support. AFAIK it was added in version 7.5.2. See here for comparison between decompilation and disassembly for various MIPS variants.
