Question [Q] Can I disable the blinking cursor?

I am looking to take advantage of the GRAM/self panel refresh/command mode panel on devices like the G2 and N5, but I need to find a way to disable the blinking cursor in text input fields.

I thought this would be a keyboard feature at first, but from what I'm reading, it's baked into the Android OS. Is there a hack(with root) or something that I can do to remove this function all together from my phone(the N5 with 4.4.2)?

Thank you in advanced for any help or leads that I can get
