Hi guys,

Been a while since I've posted here on these forums, but anyway...

I'm currently trying to customize the Mac OS X Lion Recovery disc that you can create from the Mac OS X Recovery Partition (I've created a recovery USB stick). I'm wanting to add Carbon Copy Cloner to the drive so I can run it without having to have a full install of Mac OS X on a USB drive just to clone/image my Macs.

I've added the application to the /Applications folder, however the application doesn't run when I try and launch it from the Terminal (error is: Carbon Copy Cloner.app is a directory).
The usual open -a Carbon Copy Cloner.app doesn't work as it is an unsupported command.

Has anyone here made a customized Mac OS X install/recovery disk with additional tools on it? If so, what tips/steps were involved? Google searching for something like this just yields the endless loop of creating a bootable USB drive from the Mac OS X installer.
