      You can still refile a new H1B with cap exempt

      Can you, really? Honest question. You'd be out of status, completely

      OP
      Yes, you can. But you can only do consular process, which means you have to leave the country and get H1B stamp.

      So, with i140 you get kicked out of the country, find a new job, consular process and come back? Lol almost as good as GC.

      Except, we don't know how consular processing looks at such cases. I am not confident

      OP
      Correct. If you were on H1B and have I140 over for 6 months, you are exempt from cap. As long as you get approval notice from USCIS, you would be fine with consular processing. It’s nothing close to GC. If you’re not in the country, you need to find a company that can sponsor you H1B

    Not for life. Only until your priority date becomes current. If your priority date is current for 12 consecutive months and you don't file I-485 then your I-140 gets cancelled and you are no longer eligible for post-6th year extensions.
