How to get Gamecube Homebrew Launcher working

Here are some foolproof steps to get it working:

1) Using WUFE, dump "RVL-mios-v5.wad.out.wad" from a game that includes it (for example, Super Mario Galaxy Disc, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and maybe on all discs released in between).
2) Make a folder in the root of your SD called wad (you will have this already if you used wad manager, naughty naughty!)
3) When it has finished dumping, copy (don't move, you will need it to be in the root directory as well for later) the RVL-mios-v5.wad.out.wad on the root of your SD into the "wad" folder
4) Install the WAD Manager (and don't be naughty with it!)
5) Launch the wad manager, and choose to install RVL-mios-v5.wad.out.wad by selecting it and pressing +. When the installation is complete, exit the WAD Manger with home.
6) Install the Wii Gamecube Homebrew Launcher (both GCHomebrewBooter and MIOSPatchingWADInstaller)
7) Run MIOSPatchingWADInstaller with RVL-mios-v5.wad.out.wad still in the root of your SD (note you have to use a GC controller for this app).
8) Hope that it succeeds (if you did everything right it should, just check for error messages)
9) Ensure GC games still work
10) Put the file you want to boot (eg SDLoad or SD-boot) onto one SD card, calling it start.dol. Put this into front SD.
11) Put any files that the app requires (if you want SDLoad or SD-Boot, this will mean all the apps) into another SD card in the correct folders, and put this into an SD-Gecko or similar.
12) Insert a GC game
13) Load GCBooterHomebrew
14) Play dem GC homebrews!

EDIT: How the hell do you do lists in this forum? /me changes it to a manual list for now

Any success/failure stories? I want to know if this definitely works, then add to wiibrew.

um... does this allow for running GC homebrew? Or for (potentially) running games with cheats? If not, then this is kinda pointless.

It allows GC homebrew to run, why do you think it's called the GC Homebrew Launcher?
