The boot process will hang after displaying the "Oberon Loading" message if you're boot file is too big (>640K) or you haven't set the config strings. 
I've spent some time last week in making the USB related files smaller. With my version (not yet in release), I'm now able to boot from USB with the new Bbx object file format.
I suggest that you just wait for the next release. I'll then post a description of how to get the best "Boot from USB"-experience.
