I doubt, the fact that 1,8 ghz frequency appears says nothing. That kernel is made by GPD and they are against OC. GPd cap the CPU via DVFS so people can not be aware that their device runs at a lower speed. It's a cheating practice.

To remove capped CPU kernel in GPD kernels you can take a look at these commits that explain how to remove it.

https://github.com/skelton/RK3288-tablet/commit/099ec5eb34a4c497101ff548ceeeec396f1937c8

https://github.com/skelton/RK3288-tablet/commit/1e9efe9d8d8c81495726c9df715336efeb220e6a

the last commit is common to all RK3288 devices. Rockchip introduce a SAFETY_CHEQ margin that avoids all device to go higher than 1,6, no matter what the kernel says. The only way to go higher is to increase or remove that check.

I think I had already explained that before, but I do it again.

In this sense If I do a kernel with let's say 2.2 ghz and I don't modify margin or edit dvfs device will never go to that speed, but people may think, OH, I use a 2,2 ghz kernel, but it's not real. It would be a cheating tpractice too.

Yeh sorry, I should't have spoken up.

I installed Kernel Aduitor and set it to 1.8, then installed CoolTool to view the real speed, and 1.4GHz is the max the cpu will go to. So even if you set it al 1.8, you will only get 1.4.
