Default SCH-i435 questions (firmware, CWM, unlock)

bought a phone SCH-i435
baseband i435vreamf3
kernel 3.4.0-eng se.infra@SEP-114 #1
bild serranoitevzw-eng 4.2.2 jdq39

I would like to know:
- this phone is the full analogue of the GT-I9195?
- can I flash the firmware from i9195 in my i435?
- how to make a backup of the firmware?
- is there a CWM for i435?
- does the original factory firmware for use through ODIN?
- can I i435 unlock for other SIM (not Verizon)?

The I435 is not the same as the I919x phones. Since it's verizon, it uses CDMA technology rather than GSM. I think it may work with GSM carriers outside of the US but I'm not sure.
Since the phone hardware is different than the I9195 I dont think flashing that firmware would be a good idea.

I'm not sure about the other questions. The phone may be able to be unlocked but I haven't seen any info on that.

Apparently the only way to root the SCH-I435 is using kingo which is apparently sending the imei of the phone to China. They released a new version that's supposed to not do anything sketchy, but I have yet to see any threads with confirmation. Best bet is to wait it out until other methods are ready...

I rooted my SCH-I435 with the new version of kingo. I monitored the traffic for a while and have yet to have any issues with it. Seems to be working well.

Depending on your baseband you can root using the this method: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2565758

You must be on baseband MK5 for it to work.
