1.1 and 1.2 GHz not available for OrangePi One

Recommended Posts

After some months not using my OrangePi One, yesterday I installed Armbian 5.90 buster 4.19.57 (previously I had a stretch release). I did a clean install, downloading the image and burning the microSD with it.


I noticed the button now works for 1st time since I bought the OrangePi One. It shuts down the device, no need to install or configure nothing.


But, previous Armbian versions I had, were able to set the machine CPU speed at 1.2 and 1.1 GHz. Now (with Armbian 5.90) the maximum is 1 GHz.

On previous releases, the file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/policy0/scaling_available_frequencies contained:

240000 480000 648000 816000 912000 960000 1008000 1104000 1200000 (being the last one 1.2 GHz)

But now it contains:

120000 240000 480000 648000 816000 960000 1008000 (being the first one 120 MHz, not 1.2 GHz)


In addition, the file /etc/default/cpufrequtils contains:



Where none of those speeds are available speeds, according to scaling_available_frequencies


Is there a mistake, or were 1.2 and 1.1 GHz removed for any reason?
