IOS21 was an IOS used by third party games that has an updated STM module. It also contains a copy of the NAND Boot Program in content 1 in some versions, identical to the one in IOS15; this was most likely to apply an urgent patch to the Internet Channel.
Many games such as Wii Sports were also rereleased under this IOS with a newer strap screen, probably in response to TVs getting smashed.
This IOS was used by some versions of DataChk.wad, a factory title.
