Maybe it was something with my phone then. I tried several times, it was always stuck on maximum scaling if it was not set to 1.4. But once I moved scaling up to 1.4 the governor would start behaving normally again. I was not using paid app, maybe that's the reason. Do you have Tegrak module loaded? It's not required to only control scaling, so maybe you didn't load it?
I actually like smartassV2, it seems to work more intelligently than ondemand.
My setcpu profile:
1200 max, 100 min, smartassv2.
