    Not unless you use an unlinked emunand, then you can install 600 games/apps.

    No.

    But you could install ~600 games between sysNAND and emuNAND. ~900 if you install a second emuNAND. That's not exactly A9LH exclusive though.

    Yes, you can install over 300 games: this was also true without a9lh (which, as already pointed out, isn't a factor) and even without cfw (if you had 290 original games then started adding legit cias...)

    The issue is that Home won't display more than 300 icons (not only games: badges also count against this), but you could still use alternative launchers (FBI 1, 2, and DevMenu can run applications) :)

    If your SD card can support it, yes.

    You can install >300 games using one nand, but you won't be able to see >300 games on the HOME Menu on that nand.
    You can launch >300 games using apps like FBI, DevMenu, or freeShop.

    Actually you can launch games with freeShop, just search the game you want, press A, and hit the play button with a circle around it

    You can install 600 games for each microsd you use, if you use 2 you can install 1200 games ;-)
