It wants "-nocursor", not "-hide-cursor".

Possibly these affect GTA04 only though; I'm not sure.

Also, for GTA04 I think the installed xorg.conf has the wrong
/dev/input/event<N> numbers.  For GTA04 I believe it should be
  touchscreen = 0
  Power = 2
  AUX = 5
although I suppose even better would be to use the symlinks
Are those symlinks created on Freerunner too?  If so, that's the best
overall solution.

Also what's the latest thinking on which is best for GTA04, out of Xorg
and Xfbdev?  I currently have Xfbdev installed, but I don't remember why
I made that choice.
