Backup Your Personalized Ringtones With BackMyTones
You just finished adding custom ringtones to all your contacts when you notice an update to your favorite ROM has just been released, what do you do? Do you pass on the update or do you flash the update and spend another hour or so customizing your ringtones? If you suffer from Obsessive Rom Flashing Disorder (ORD), like myself, chances are you will sacrifice the hard work put into assigning ringtones, and flash the updated ROM. If you are a procrastinator, again like myself, you might leave the default ringtones set for a few days before deciding to spend your precious time re-assigning personalized tones. But what if there was a better way to manage your ringtone assignments? What if you could backup your individually assigned ringtones so that every time an updated ROM came out, you were not left with the difficult decision of “to flash or not to flash?”.
Lucky for us, XDA member saarraz1 has made the decision a little easier with his application BackMyTones. This tool allows you to create and restore backups of your custom ringtone settings with just a few clicks. Your ringtone settings are saved onto your SD card, so whether you uninstall the app or replace your ROM, you will still have access to your backup.
The process is easy and takes no more than a few seconds to backup your settings and save you serious headaches.
Stop wasting your time and energy by manually assigning ringtones and download BackMyTones from the Marketplace. For more information, see the original thread..

VP of Engineering Jen Fitzpatrick began talking about what Google is doing to help “the next billion” come online.
