I run Waze on two devices. One at the time. To "sync" favorites I delete all traces of Waze on one device. That includes clear data, clear cache, force stop, uninstall, delete waze folder. Wait few hours and re install from .apk or Play Store.
Hardware:
Nexus 5 KK 4.4.2
HTC One KK 4.4.2
Galaxy Tab 7.7 GT-P6800 JB 4.1.2
Nexus 10 KK 4.4.2
Waze 3.7.8.0

I've not seen that command before. Nice find.

The next steps worked for me:

1) If you're already logged in with Facebook please login with Waze (you need to sync Facebook with Waze).

2) Go to Menu >> Navigate and type in the search bar: ##@restorefav

Good luck!

And there seems to be a known problem with that. It hits very rarely, but when it does, your favourites are gone.

If you still have your old phone: copy the history file from its Waze folder. Always keep your own backup of that file to keep things in your own hands.

After migrating to a Galaxy S4 just now, Waze didn't restore my favorites automatically.

The ##@restorefav command did the trick. Put it on the navigation search box, search, and then agree when asked... but do it quickly because the dialog will close and it will start to really search something.

It is also covered in the Wiki under Restore favorites.
