'framework-res' is an apk file, that I extracted with 7zip
My idea is to extract the APK file above, and just replace the cursor icon with something smaller or more like the one on Samsung ROMS, then 'remake' (dunno if you compile/compress it) it into a apk, flash this to the device. Would this work or not?
I have attached the two /png images found in the folder above, which I pulled out of the latest CM11 nightly. The basic idea is to replace the cursor with the other icon.
If this is not possible, is there another way to do it? Xposed modules are able to replace battery icons and all sorts of other things. Can the cursor be replaced that way?
