  1. After copying the installation package to Applications folder:
    sudo /Applications/"Install OS X Mavericks.app"/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/"Flash Name" --applicationpath /Applications/"Install OS X Mavericks.app"
    where "Flash Name" -- the real name of your flash.
