It is available for free, but under a special license  that  prevents
you  from  using  it  for any hardware that is not a MIPS "Authorized
Product". See http://www.mips.com/LicenseMapper/Yamon_license


An alternative is to use  U-Boot,  the  universal  boot  loader  that
covers not only MIPS but also PowerPC, ARM, and even x86 systems. See
http://sourceforge.net/projects/u-boot

U-Boot is strictly GPL.
