IOS5 is a rare stub IOS present in some Wiis. No known functional version has ever been found.

v514 is not real; it is instead a copy of IOS21v514 that was posted online for unknown reasons, and may be found on Wiis bought from previous modders.

PatchMii's example also probably installed to this slot at some point, since bushing claimed PatchMii installs to this slot, despite it actually installing into IOS254. The version installed by PatchMii is a copy of IOS37 with fakesigning and DVD video enabled.

It is not known whether the IOS5 stub was to target these hacks, or to prevent the functional version from being pirated the same way IOS16 was pirated.
