    In ~/Library/ backup the Safari folder. It contains everything you need. Then replace it to restore.

    Hmm actually tried that and looks like I might have lost them, theyre not appearing on my phone. :(

    they should replace the default files in private/var/mobile/Library/Safari right?

    if thats not working is there anyway I can at least see the list of these bookmarks in the bookmarks.db file - so I can maybe retreive some manually or am I sol?
