    Is there a way to backup the user defined dictionary when switching between ROMs? I searched around a bit but couldn't find a solution for HTC phones. Would restoring HTC_IME using titanium backup work? (assuming you are restoring sense 2.2 on top of 2.2?)

    Use Titanium Backup. The user dictionary is a green entry named "[USER DICT] com.android.providers.userdictionary".

    Sorry for opening such an old thread, but I figured others might have this issue, because I know I did when flashing CM7.

    I tried that after flashing Medion's ROM "Liberation", and it didn't work. I even tried restoring App+Data and it was still empty.

    I searched further down in Ti and found "[USER DICT HTC] Touch Input 2.10" which is also a green entry almost at the bottom of the list. When I restored the Data only on this, my dictionary was fully restored. I'm not sure if it's a combination of the two, or if only the second one is required, but it worked.

    My question is, will it work when flashing a GingerROM, a non-Sense ROM, or any other ROM that is not 2.2?

    It's basically the same thing on GB...[USER DICT] User Dictionary 2.3.3

    You may run into problems when trying to restore the 2.2 version to 2.3. All you can do is give it a shot. Once you're up and running on GB for the long term though, it'd be the same scenario you're already using.
