Ok I'm an absolute noob, having done nothing more than unlock my phone. Now I need to root it in order to fix a battery charging issue. I've been studying all the methods for rooting the exhibit ii and just to be conservative I thought I'd start with the method that doesn't make any changes to the phone itself. I'll look at ROM changes later. To do this it seems I need to first install CWM. However, to install CWM I must push the & button. Some folks have said they find & on their keyboard, but I can't find it. I've got 2.3.6 with the standard Samsung keyboard and the swype keyboard. I'm not finding & on either of these. Can someone tell me where it is located or how I can get it? Also, does the phone have to be rooted to install and use Titanium backup or can I do the backup before I root it?
