Specs: Samsung Galaxy S II GT-I9100M, OS v2.3.3?

Issues:
1. It resets randomly whenever I'm playing music with it, usually whenever the humidity or a cold breeze strikes the phone.
2. Messed up battery estimation. Games literally burn a hole through my phone, and it dies. I turn it back on, and I find it somehow recovering more battery power.
3. Overheats.
4. A pain to update.

As much as I like the OS, the phone itself has some serious issues. It's impossible to update without wiping my phone. If anyone could paste an easy to follow link to rooting my phone, backing everything up, then updating it, that would be really helpful. I get updates from Kies, but it requires me to wipe my entire phone, and I do not wish to lose all my data on certain apps.

Galaxy S II's DAC is horrible, one reason why I don't like my phone. The problem with this phone is it's difficult to manage, and that Android rooting process requires more work and research. Anyone else have a guide to root without wiping my phone?
