I thought I remembered you saying your phone was your only internet? Isnt that what the rooting trouble was all about?

Anyway, a weak wifi signal isn't going to be solved by any sort of app or anything like that. There is an advanced setting you can use for "best wifi performance"--but its gonna kill your battery.

I would check your router for issues. You shouldn't have to place the phone next to the router for it to get a signal. Even on the OG Evo. Make sure the router and phone are on compatible bands.

I would start there.
