After you've made your Unetbootin USB drive, you'll need to do two things: first, you've got to create a casper-rw file on the USB. That's the file that will hold all the changes. It's what makes a persistent install persistent. After that, you'll need to amend the syslinux.cfg file on the USB to include the persistent designation. The syslinux.cfg file is the boot file; if when you boot, you haven't specified that you're booting a persistent system, then the system won't use the casper-rw file.
In order to alter the USB drive, you should not boot into it. Instead, boot into another system and mount the USB drive so that you can save to it.
