Hey guys

I’m seriously thinking of rooting my wife’s htc desire z, as she has been experiencing problems with poor signal and battery life lately.
Will rooting and installing a custom rom help or hinder these issues? On Tuesday her phone battery died by 4pm but today (Wednesday) with exactly the same usage, the battery lasted a whole day.
It’s annoying because it’s a good phone but little niggles like this are becoming annoying!
