Angry Uinput.ko module question

hi everyone.

I am attempting to install a Logitech f310 controller to utilize through Bluestacks for gaming on my Windows 10 OS (laptop PC). However, the issue arises that I need to install a uinput.ko file through the Terminal Emulator in order for my gamepad controller to be recognized, etc.

My objective is to get Bluestacks to recognize my Logitech controller f310... after researching, it has become apparent that I need to install uinput.ko through the terminal in order for this controller to be recognized, etc.

Does anyone here know of a way that I can install uinput.ko through Terminal?? I have followed line-by-line steps but get stuck when attempting to follow:

insmod /system/lib/modules/uinput.ko

after this command, Terminal reports back that the entry failed & that "operation not permitted".

Can someone guide me in the correct direction for this final step? I have researched google for hours but I have yet to find a solution. Thanks!

Do it as root/sudo - you don't mention your distro, but this should work; enter your password when requested
sudo insmod /system/lib/modules/uinput.ko

sudo insmod /system/lib/modules/uinput.ko

inserting 'sudo' prior to this command line did NOT work... any ideas?? Anyone?? Terminal tells me that 'sudo' not found.

mount -o remount,rw /system
chmod 644 /system/lib/modules/uinput.ko
insmod /system/lib/modules/uinput.ko

This is where I get 'operation not permitted'

Very frustrating... can anyone offer any insight as to how to get this last command executed so that I can install my logitech f310 within bluestacks (rooted)???
