HeX 1.0.3 LiveUSB (CNY Release)

After much adeau, here it is! Instructions for usage are quite simple, dd it to your usb thumb drive (the drive, not a partition or it will NOT work). This image includes all of the same features as our mainline HeX 1.0.3 release but is on USB not CD, the filesystem is therefore also writable. You will need a minimum of a 2G Thumb Drive or Memory Stick to write this. I say "Memory Stick" because I have heard rumor of some people using SD rather than USB Thumb Drives to use this tool.

So for example on my freebsd system I would dd as follows:

dd if=/path/to/foo/hex-i386-1.0.3.usb.img of=/dev/da0 bs=1M

command is simple... if is the Input File, output is the Output File (in this case it is the da0 device) and bs=1M is setting the block size to 1mb - this helps to speed up the write process.
