I'm trying to debug a remote device using gdbserver and IDA Pro. I'm attached to the correct PID and I'm able to step through instructions until the point where I redirect $pc to my ROP chain. At the jalr I get a SIGTRAP and the process crashes. My goal is to be able to trace through the shellcode outside of the loaded binary scope.

Is it possible with IDA Pro or do I need gdb on my client suitable for MIPS? if so where can I find a tutorial/explanation how to do so?
