Qualcomm dropped support for msm8225 and this is the main reason why all devs are ignoring this device.. Someone in this thread told that s duos 2 has lower cpu than quattro?? Atleast google it before saying it.. that phone has cortex a9 broadcom processor which is far better than cortex a5.. Quattro has backdated cpu, accept this fact and probably it will never get bug free cm11..

moreover fixing bugs in cm11 will require many hacks and will lack hardware acceleration
msm8225 devices have qualcomm support for drivers upto 4.2.2 so at most if we will get anything it'll be 4.2.2 max!

And 4.2.2 is already backdated... And I heard from someone that samsung service centre guy informed that 4.2.2 is already out for testing and will be available within 1 month..
