I know my posts may seem long at times...(not always..I'm sure )
And I DO know when I do explanatory an walk through of something I have done, I like to be as thorough as possible and cover every possible angle of explanation of process so as to avoid confusion in the reader.

Consequently walk through explanations from me,
for the reader,
tend to the realm of " tl;dr ..or "skimming over" (hell I would! )
but I do suggest reading the walk throughs ..
They have all been heavily edited to cut out the "ifs" "ands" and "buts"
and are as concise as humanly possible.

hmm...concerning the torrent or file hosting problem...
How far are you from Hardy?
Have you considered sending it via trebuchet?

I don't want to use my HDD to install another system. I want to create a system on a portable memory and as you wrote take it everywhere I want, use it and be happy with it. Right now I can't do anything because all work has to be copied to another memory.
In LiLi, I can't enable persistence, because there is no option for this. The same goes for Rufus and UUI.
As far as I can see the persistence is only available for Ubuntu tree.

Can you answer to me this questions?
1. Is this possible to create a persistent live system on USB flash from SOLYDmaemo.iso? (I would prefer simple yes/no)
2. What program do I have to use to achieve point 1? (LiLi, Rufus, UUI, DD, other)
3. Does creating .sblive (from systemback as far as I know) make it possible to put it on USB stick and use it as live persistent system? (yes/no)

Systemback will do it.

BUT to make things easier and less complicated
for starters......
make sure you do make your usb BEFORE you start loading up your distro with work...
just to make sure you are not complicating the process ...
If you have never used systemback before ...I suggest it.

Systemback HAS an "enable persistence" check box IN it's process ..
you do have to "click" it on.

Just follow the guide...
In fact ...
here...

https://ubuntu-mate.community/t/using-systemback/13062

There are a number of tutorials, Q&A, and explanatory essays on the web concerning Systemback.

Read up.
Make a copy of the SOLYDmaemo iso...
Play around with Systemback with a test copy...
Follow any old Systemback tutorial for doing a copy to usb with enabled persistence...

It is a simple process once one gets the hang of it.

Have fun.

fantastic, splitting the iso into parts is definitely a wise thing to do, and after that user could combine them into one after downloading if its possible. it is right ?

rar the iso into small rars...
then file share all the itty bitty baby rars together.

then once ALL the rars have been successfully downloaded ..
unrarring or extracting the 1st rar "should" chain the rest into the complete iso.

It "shouldn't" work...
it is a given that it "will" work ...
as long as the process is done correctly.

I do suggest when rarring the distro into parts..use the "highest quality" compression option...
It will mean there will be more little rars ..but the overall file integrity will be bulletproof .

So to sum it up ...
rarring will keep the file integrity of whatever contained ...pristine and uncorrupted.
and it is a common thing to split a rar up into smaller rars.

I'd wish you good luck...but there isn't a need...no luck involved here

hmmm...

back to the issue of the distro and using systemback.
Before I forget...

please remember to make your copies of the iso BEFORE mucking around with it.
For backup purposes naturally....
in case anything you do (deliberately or not)..
borks the distro

Especially... considering that SOLYDmaemo is starting to get a little long in the tooth..
a few new releases of SOLYD have passed since then..
If you go updating the SOLYDmaemo distro at any point....
I cannot fathom if all will turn out well or not..
since I haven't tested such issues in a while now.

(been busy working on an antix maemo devel distro as the natural successor ..or as I like to call it..."Anti-mo"...)
Date ready: completely unknown at this point.
