Default [Q] why can get my phone's cpu freq. to 600mv on Perfromace but not on another gov?

my phone has all its frequency’s at 600mv. But this only works in performance mode for some reason.

What I do is set it to performance, lower the frequency’s to 600mv and set it back to smartass v2. That seems to work. But trying to set it to those low frequency on smartass cause the phone to reboot. Why is that?

Using this app you may be more successful. But the kernel creator may make certain frequencies available to certain governors

The lower frequencies require more voltage to be stable. When on performance, your CPU is stuck at the max frequency, smartass and other governors scale frequencies and so when you are not using your phone, the frequency drops and so those lower frequency were not stable at what you have set your device to. Raise your frequencies back to stock and take it one frequency at a time.
