Default Uk back to US rom question

I am on the UK rom and thought about going to the US rom, but I am rooted and have null installed and have my gear right how I want it. So the question is If I flash the US rom will I lose my root and all of my stuff and have to do it all over? I am new to this.

Yes you will be wiping everything when you flash the new firmware. It basically formats and re writes then new firmware. There is no need to switch back to US version. I am still on UK aswell with no plans of redoing to usa version.

I tried to Odin back to the US ROM and all I get is stuck on the Samsung screen on the gear. I even tried to go back to stock UK and same result. Everything flashes fine just won't get off the Samsung screen. Only way I can get the gear to work again is to Odin the recovery and flash null. Am I missing something?

For me battery life's much improved with the US firmware.
