    Default How come theres no BT4 on usb (persistent) ?

    Just looking in the download section and theres a BT3 final usb download but not one for BT4. Is this normal ? Is it possible to make a persistent BT4 usb

    I think they are going to wait for a final version before releasing the USB. When BT3 beta came out I don't think there was a USB download either.

    DVD Image == USB Image

    Or am I wrong here?

    I've still got a persistent setup on my 16gb drive, anyway.

    Persistent changes would be were you want your changes to be made to, for instance a usb drive. As for making a BT4 usb there are tutorials both here and on the web showing how to do this.
    It is basically the same as before.

    nudda,
    Heres an interesting concept on making a bootable usb stick with both BT3 and BT4 on the same stick, it works really well.

    Yup, you can use your BT4.iso for a image for your usb drive, just make another partition thats NTFS (pretty sure its NTFS) to where you want to save changes.
