When the motion to quash was granted, it means that you were not properly served. You do not need to do anything until you are properly served with the summons and complaint.
If your motion to quash service of summons is granted, the plaintiff must re-serve the summons. Unless and until you are re-served, you do not need to file an Answer or other responsive pleading.
Typically, you have 5 days from service of an unlawful detainer summons to answer and 30 days from service of a state court summons to answer.
No, it does NOT mean the case is dismissed.
