Shalom to you all!

I've developed a small application I've always wanted - RandomRingtone.
When I owned a Symbian-based phone, I had this little app that changed my ringtone after each call.
Unfortunately I couldn't find a way to know if you've just finished a call or not, so I had to use a background agent instead.

This app will select a random ringtone from your Custom ringtones, and set it as your ringtone. This will happen once every thirty minutes or so.

Version history:
0.1 - 13/04/2012
Initial app release
0.2 - 20/04/2012
Added option to set Toast notification
Revamped UI
0.3 - 10/7/2012
Upgraded Root Tools version to 0.2.1.0
Added ability to Randomize SMS Tone
Bugs squashed


Future updates:
Ability to randomize from built-in ringtones as well
Release of source code(It currently looks like a mess, I'll probably make it pretty and release it soon)
New Icon
Choose which Ringtones to randomize from Ringtones list


Currently tested on:
Omnia 7
HD7
Focus


I really hope this works on other devices, but since I have no way of checking, I'd be more than happy for your feedback if this worked on your device.

This app uses the Root Tools SDK developed by Heathcliff74, and I thank him for that.
This also means you need install Root Tools SDK and give this app permission, or use a full rooted ROM.


Enjoy!

Thanks for the suggestion - I'll consider it for a future version.
If I will add this, you won't be able to select a specific time. You'll have the ability to select a timespan in which the ringtone will be updated.

On Samsung Focus it seems to have an issue. It selects the same selected ringtone every time.

I have 8107 with WP7 Root Tools.

When you open the app and click "Randomize", does the program select the same ringtone as well every time?

Since I don't have Focus, I'll need you to check something.
Go to WP7 Root Tools and open these two folders:
Current User\ControlPanel\Sounds\CustomProtectedRingtones
Current User\ControlPanel\Sounds\CustomRingtones

and check which ringtones you have there.
Screenshot could be even better

That's... a bit odd. are you sure the windows phone settings page displays all the other custom ringtones you added to it?

Two more tests:
1) open WP7 Root Tools again, but this time go to "explorer" and check these folders:
My Documents > Ringtones
My Documents > My Ringtones

2) Go to the Settings on your Windows phone, and select a custom ringtone which was not displayed in the registry test.
Now open WP7 Root Tools and navigate to this registry entry:
Current User\ControlPanel\Sounds\RingTone0
and paste here the value of the "Sound" entry.
