Question Live usb help; Persistence

Hi again guys.
Is it possible to create a persistent live usb with a storage space of more than 4 GB?
I'm using Ubuntu and a distro based on Ubuntu.

Why not consider a normal install to a usb in that case?

Yes, it is possible. The following will create a separate partition so your flash drive needs to be at least 8GB.
