Like it says on the title, the VSH Menu doesn't show up when I press SELECT on the XMB.
The PSP has 6.60 PRO installed, and the permanent CIPL patch as well.
The SELECT button works fine on other stuff.
I dont remember if the VSH menu used to work, since I picked up the console after 4 or 5 years without touching it and updated it straight away to 6.60 from 5.00 m33.
I have access to the recovery menu, just don't have the vsh menu. Any ideas to what could solve this problem ? Thanks in advance.

UPDATE: Downgraded to 5.00 m33 with pandora and ddc8, before that I even formatted Lflash and created new IDStorage. Now on 5.00 m33 and even on 5.50 gen, the vsh menu shows up but when i try to exit, reset vsh or shutdown device it freezes and I cant close it. To sum it up: now I have the vsh menu showing up but it's useless since it freezes every time I open it no matter what.
Then I upgraded again to 6.60 pro and it doesn't show up again. I'm actually going insane now.
Anyone wants to give me advice on this ?

UPDATE 2: For anyone wondering, the solution was to replace the PSP's home bar. Ordered from ebay and changed it myself, and now the vsh menu works fine. So if u have the same problem, this is very likely your solution.
You probably have some problem with the home/volume bar that is stopping the vsh menu from working properly. My select button worked fine, but my mute button wasn't working. Even tho it had nothing to do with the select button, it somehow affected the vsh menu. Now everything works fine on any FW. Hope this helps.
