Default Backup widgets and shortcuts from desktop

Hi everyone!

I have got MK802 Android 4.0.4.
I need to do backup widgets and shortcuts from my desktop. I found that shortcuts can be saved due to /data/data/com.android.launcher/databases/launcher.db. However it can't save widgets and their positions on desktops.
After reburning I push that file in its location on the device and see that only sortcuts are set correctly. Widgets don't appear though I continue to see records in launcher.db about widgets.
The question is, how to save my widgets and their position on desktops. Where does android hide those settings?

I am planning to do it using ADB and scripts

Do you have a suggestion?

Thanks everyone!

I have the same issue.
Is there any way to backup the widgets and shortcuts with apps? or backup in computer?
