I was able to root mines on the same firmware. But I couldn't get the null rom to stick or show up on my watch. I went and factory reset everything. Now I can't get cydia impacter to root it I get error . Don't know what I did wrong now.

rooting is fine on the new nc1 firmware, just make sure you follow the correct steps in the guide on this forum.

if you want to flash null rom, you will need to downgrade, flash mk7 firmware, root that, then install null rom, the guide is also on this forum. The reason is null rom is based off the previous version to nc1.

if you want to go back to stock, you have to use odin to flash the stock firmware, that is the only way.
