Here is a new Soas-v6-Pineapple .img file to use to dd write to a 2GB USB

There is also
For Macintosh-(Boots directly in a limited number of intel Macs)

These are a great way to produce a number of SoaS bootable USB's from 
one download of the .img file


Be sure to type "mount" in terminal first to determine the correct 
device name for your USB
  ie: /dev/sdb; /dev/sdc....etc

Here is a typical root terminal session:

  dd if=Soas_Coconuts.img of=/dev/sd(x) bs=2M
  956+0 records in
  956+0 records out
  2004877312 bytes (2.0 GB) copied, 93.2584 s, 21.5 MB/s

Note this only takes 93 seconds to write a USB.
