Phone [Q] Touch Pointer Color Change?

Hey XDA,

Long time lurker, first time poster. First off, thanks a ton for the detailed guides, I was able to root my phone today and install the speaker mod and the camera mod relatively quickly for a COMPLETE novice.

My next question is, can I change the color (from white to anything) of the "Show touches" cursor on my LG G2? I've attached screenshot to help explain what I'm trying to do.

Have you tried calling your telecom provider?

As in call Verizon and ask this? I guess I haven't as I figured this would be more of a customization outside of what a large corporation would rollout?

I wasn't able to find any image files in the framework that seemed to be connected to the touch pointer image... any other ideas? I feel like someone has to have changed this feature before, it would be such a cool customization

I would think LGSettings.apk or possibly LGE-res.apk or LGSystemui.apk
If you use xposed you could add a feature request to one of the modules in the dev section.
