I just received my MI 8 Lite today and it came with MIUI 9.6.3.0 Global Stable ROM.

Previously I owned Redmi 5 Plus, and when I updated it from MIUI 9 to MIUI 10 I started having notification problems (some apps don't show notifications, no matter what I do - I tried everything possible that I found in forums, but nothing helped).

From what I saw online, the phone is not the problem, it's the MIUI 10 that is causing the issue. And I've heard that this won't be fixed until the PIE update comes (which will be in Q1 2019 for MI 8 Lite).

Would like to ask - if I update my new MI 8 Lite to the newest MIUI 10 and face the same notification issues, will it be possible to downgrade to MIUI 9 without having to root the phone (just download MIUI 9 zip file, put it on phone memory and update via System update menu)? Want to make sure it's possible before doing anything. Eventually I'll be downloading the MIUI 9 ROM from here (https://www.xda-developers.com/download-miui-9-global-stable-xiaomi-mi-8-lite-mi-8-pro/).

Thanks in advance for your help!
