Bootable USB to ISO


I feel like the last several hours I spend looking for my answer was like taking a drink from a firehose, yet I can't help thinking that it's a simple task if I only know where to look.

I have BrowserLinux running on an 8Gb USB stick that I have added to, some plugins, bookmarks, apps and I want to convert it into an iso image I can give friends so they can duplicate my installation completely just by using UNetBootin to burn that iso to their own USB stick.

Where should I be looking? Most of what I find is about Multi-Boot and doesn't apply.

This forum came the closest that I could find, so I decided to ask.

Thanks!

If you made it on unetbootin then just give them the persistent file.

Then they can make their usb from an iso of that distro and apply that file over the as created persistent file.

BrowserLinux does not use a persistence file, but they do use a lupusave.2fs file which has the same purpose (I believe). What I was trying to do by creating an .iso file is release them from the necessity of copying files or getting involved in the inner workings. They are mostly newbies to computer and certainly not familiar with Linux, so I don't want to scare them away.

If they can fire up UNetBootin and point it to their USB stick, I think they can handle that.

Somehow there must be a procedure they used to create the original .iso file I used to install it?
