Summary0005264: Documentation Issue: USB Persistence creation
DescriptionNo matter how I've built the USB drive, with dd or some external process,

read start _ < <(du -bcm kali-linux-2016.2-amd64.iso | tail -1); echo $start
parted /dev/sdb mkpart primary $start $end

does not appear to work creating the partition.
read start _ < <(du -bcm kali-linux-2016.2-amd64.iso | tail -1); echo $start

throws an error and therefore the

parted /dev/sdb mkpart primary $start $end

Doesn't work.

I managed to get it to work by creating the persistence partition with an external gparted.
Steps To Reproduceattempting to follow the given persistence USB instructions

Documentation has been updated so it gets the latest release, so that people won't try to copy and paste the older ISO names in when attempting to build persistence partition.
