This thread I've posted may be of interest to you UK & Ireland Note9 folks.
I've rooted and flashed firmware before without any problems. Not sure I could remember what to do or why.

I'm still looking at the right hand side of my status bar for the time of day when it's now on the left hand side ! Lol.

I have noticed that when you pull down the notification shade once, you are able to see the notification in the notification shade. However, when you pull it down another time, you are no longer able to the the notification, but just the settings toggles.
It would be nice if you could also see the notification when you pull down the notification tray twice. This would be good for one-handed use, which is what Samsung's aim was for One UI
I've had to re-initialise a couple of apps and gone back to the 3 navigation buttons at the bottom. Couldn't manage with that up swiping and getting something else, eg an app or the apps page. If it runs better, I'm used to it already
