If you want to have the latest Android 4.4.4 but are not satisfied with running Carbon ROM based of 4.4.4 on your Duos, or are simply a fan of CyanogenMod and like to run nothing but CM, then you can now easily have the latest KitKat version through CyanogenMod11 thanks to k2wl from xda forums.

What is CM?

CyanogenMod is a free, community built, aftermarket firmware distribution of Android 4.4 (KitKat), which is designed to increase performance and reliability over stock Android for your device.
It is based on the Android Open Source Project with extra contributions from many people within the Android community. It can be used without any need to have any Google application installed. You will need to provide your own Google Applications package (gapps). CyanogenMod does still include various hardware-specific code, which is also slowly being open-sourced anyway.
