Minima Launcher not working correctly
[It's a Homebrew application most commonly used to play Brawl mods but can be used to launch any game with codes enabled quickly with less folder clutter than gecko.]
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
[On Wii you can use Minima Launcher.dol to launch Brawl Minus or anything else with codes, on Dolphin the .dol won't even start and the .elf causes graphical glitches in the game]
What steps will reproduce the problem?
[1. Open Minima Launcher.elf with a default ISO set
2. Start playing the game
3. Notice weird bits of geometry wigging out]
Which versions of Dolphin did you test on? Does using an older version of Dolphin solve your issue? If yes, which versions of Dolphin used to work?

Whipped out a Linux VM and compiled the version of Minima Launcher that includes the Hook Fix. The latest version of Minima Launcher appears to solve this issue.

I didn't need any workarounds for this launcher so it boosted Android's Brawl Mod performance from ~30FPS to ~37FPS!
