Hello all the geniouses at XDA..

I have question regarding how to backup user dictionary on HTC Desire.
I change ROMs on a regular basis. Trying and evaluating new ROMs
But one of the biggest problems I face is I lose all my user dictionary words which I have saved and after switching to a new ROM, I have to add all the words again to my user dictionary.

I was wondering if there exists any way through which I can backup my user dictionary and restore it once I have switched to a new ROM, so that I dont have to go through the hassle of adding them again to my dictinary?

I think "My backup Pro" has this feature...

I'm not sure if the Desire 2.2 ROMs have this option but I know the Desire HD 2.2 ROM allows you to backup/restore the dictionary under Settings > Language and Keyboards > Touch Input settings > Personal dictionary.

And if you use the HTC_IME mod keyboard, then that also has the option to backup and restore.

Yeah. I tried My backup Pro. According to the apps description it has this feature but I tried it once before changing a Rom and when I restored my backup, it completed successfully but there were no words in the dictionary. So, in short it doesn't work.

I use the HTC.IME mod (its basically the sense keyboard for a non sense Rom) and backup pro does save the settings and dictionary because its installed as an app and not part of the rom. I've not lost a word since I rooted and started flashing roms.

Ok guys. Now I can totally confirm that mybackuppro does NOT restore the user dictionary. It does backup it up but does NOT restore.

I found another way of doing it through. It's by using titanium backup. There is a system file in titanium backup by name of [USER DICT HTC] Touch Input 2.10 in green colour. If you back it up and restore it using titanium backup after ROM change, you will still have your user dictionary intact.
