Every time I try to create the bootable USB drive (and I have detached all external drives in Finder & Disk Utility), I receive the following error after it copies the files to the USB stick: "There was an error creating your UniBeast drive: Couldn't detach OS X Base System". As you can see from the figure below, there are 2 instances of "OS X Base System" that have been created during the creation of the USB drive.

Any fixes for this bug?

Trying to catch it before I get that error is the problem.

The fix is simple:

After copying the necessary files: Check the list of disks in "Disk Utility", and eject all instances of "OS X Base System".

Can that be implemented for the next version of UniBeast?

It would not allow me to eject either of the "OS X Base System" disks. I tried ejecting them as soon as they appeared.

The error message that I received was: "Failed to eject "OS X Base System" because it is currently in use".

Are there any other suggested fixes?

Make sure it's not mounted before running UniBeast.
Make sure "WHAT" isn't mounted before running UniBeast?

The only thing mounted is the USB drive (BTW, the USB drive has to be formatted on "Mac (Journaled)", right?)
