Just did this, used an antenna from an old d-link router I had laying around.
And wow it works great! Now I can actually use my Bluetooth xbox controller without pointing it at the shield while sitting 1 meter from it ?

Nice I will try it. Another question. Am I guessing right that the antenna on the other side is the wifi antenna? Because I also want to improve the wifi signal of the shield.

Ok. How did you found out the other one is the bluetooth antenna?

In bottom PCB I remove shield cans, i can see name IC wifi & bluetooth (It's name Broadcom BCM4356, you can search datasheet on google).I guess that is bluetooth antenna (maybe this point for wifi antenna). i soldering external antenna and test with remote

Here overview in datasheet
The Cypress CYW4356 single-chip device provides the highest level of integration for a mobile or handheld wireless system, with
integrated IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac MAC/baseband/radio, Bluetooth 4.1 + EDR (enhanced data rate), FM receiver, and Alliance for
Wireless Power (A4WP) support. The wireless charging feature works in collaboration with the Wireless Power Transfer (WPT)
BCM59350 front-end IC. It provides a small form-factor solution with minimal external components to drive down cost for mass
volumes and allows for handheld device flexibility in size, form, and function. Comprehensive power management circuitry and
software ensure the system can meet the needs of highly mobile devices that require minimal power consumption and reliable
operation.
