  • Why CPU is 100% after desktop is idle for some minutes?
   Rock2 square supports dynamic cpu frequency. The cpu can run as low as 126Mhz and as high as 1.8Ghz depends on the task load. This saves power. If you want to let the cpu ran at 1.8Ghz all the time. Run echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
