Hi @exenew - there are multiple different ways to do what you want to do !

1) If you have gparted or clonezilla or even "dd" command on another linux box you can duplicate the flash stick there.

2) Use bodhi's rootfs to create a "fresh" wheezy installation with new kernel - he lists the exact procedure to do so here - http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,12096

3) If you don't have another linux machine or any of the tools in (1) (which I think is unlikely !), then you could try arch linux's hot copy of live rootfs - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/full_system_backup_with_rsync

Without knowing exactly what you want to do, my recommendation would be option (2) ...
