    bootroms cant be patched, and probably yes

    to be more clear, limera1n isnt an exploit. limera1n uses a bootrom exploit as well as a userland. the userland exploit will probably be patched tho

    Bootroms can most definitely be patched...What do you think happened with the whole MB vs MC model thing? They will patch it, but probably not before December. I believe it takes between 4-6 months to get it done.

    It can be, but Apple has to work hard to do it... But Apple can't patch it if you currently own it.

    IDK if the refurbs get patched too.

    refurbs don't.
    They only replace the battery and case.
