Teffilin was created by Daniel
Are there any Yekkes that wrap there Teffilin out, or is the Minhag only to wrap in? (I have a friend who insists that it is his Minhag to wrap out).
Thank You,

Minhag Ashkenaz is definitely to wrap Teffilin in.

I've read Chasiddim rearrange the knot it'll not look like a "cross" from the inner side. I don't think this is correct to do so.
Because it is not a "cross" at all! I suppose this is "Taw"-arammi, the name of God. The same sign "Taw"-arammi we can see in the Torah in Shmos Tetzave 29:2 and 29:7
אחר אפייתן מושחן כמין כי יונית
אף משיחה זו כמין כי יונית, נותן שמן על ראשו ובין ריסי עיניו ומחברן באצבעו:

and this week Parashah Tzav 8:12
בתחלה יוצק על ראשו, ואחר כך נותן בין ריסי עיניו ומושך באצבעו מזה לזה:

I guess this letter is "Taw"-arammi, the name of the God. We can see this letter included into the word "Emes" (Alef-Mem-Taw), where "Alef" is also the name of the God "E-LOACH" in Yeshayahu 44:6 and 48:12
כה אמר יי מלך ישראל וגאלו יי צבאות אני ראשון ואני אחרון ומבלעדי אין אלקים׃
שמע אלי יעקב וישראל מקראי אני הוא אני ראשון אף אני אחרון׃
