So I did this last night. I installed the same antennae as you did. I ordered the 100mm - it was quite a bit longer than the one in your picture but I routed the lead next to the battery which was fine.
I do think it helped - perhaps not the miracle cure I was hoping for. I seem to not be experiencing the same frequency of freezes and glitches when gamestreaming - however I did still see a couple of instances of the low signal indicator with 2 bars when streaming. Streaming from You Tube is still nowhere near as smooth as my other devices, a shield portable, kindle tablets and my Iphone or Ipad - more buffering and pauses.
ultimately, I do recommend the mod as it is easy, cheap and I think an improvement over the stock antennae..
Thanks for posting your experiment!
