    Before installing the mios v8/v5/v4 wad, do I need to uninstall the mios already in my wii? Also, is there any difference in the compatibly between v4, v5 and v8? Thanks.

    no u dont need to unintall as it goes over the top of it and for compatibility i have no idea what the diff between 4/5/3/8 is
    none of the threads ive seen actually tell you the difference in using each mios version

    Older versions of the MIOS are supposed to have Action Replay support, supposedly. But other than that there isn't much a difference AFAIK.

    Also, I make it a habit to uninstall the MIOS (and the same as IOS249) whenever I install a later revision just to make sure. But you shouldn't have to, it's just an extra step.
