Fix Favorites List in EmulationStation
Is it possible to fix Favorite List in EmulationStation?
According to this thread on retropie forum, EmulationStation stores favorites on "/opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation/gamelists/$console" ,  storing inside each console's gamelist.xml just changing the favorite value to true, and it seems to be a permission problem, so I tried to update the permissions like the sscalley recommended.

"To update the permissions of all the gamelists to pi for the owner and group, while still in /home/pi/.emulationstation/gamelists you can run this command

sudo find ./ -name 'gamelist.xml' -exec chown pi:pi {} ;"

but after that I get the error message:
"find: missing argument to "-exec", does anyone can help me with that?

Edit: Fixed now, I just needed to press "Start" in EmulationStation, open "Other Settings", change "Save Metadata on Exit" to on.
