    that right above needs to go into terminal but i have no idea how to do that i have no experience with this and need to know what exactly goes into terminal "Run the following commands, changing the path to the edited kext file as needed (make sure to press “Return” after each command and to remove the linebreak from #1&2):" that is what he told me to do but idk how so any advice would be great thank you !

    Open up Terminal and copy/paste (or type) the first line into the window. Press the enter (return) key. Repeat for lines 2-7.

    Note: You will have to type in your user password after the first line (it will prompt you for it after you press enter).

    don't copy the numbers at the beginning of the line though.. :)
    eg:
    sudo mv /System/Library/Extensions/360Controller.kext /System/Library/Extensions/360Controller.kext.old

    and when it asks for the password, it won't show you anything (like hashes or anything) as you type it in - just type the password and then enter.

    Also, line 2 will need adjusting depending on where you put your modified copy of this file
    360Controller.kext
    If you put it on your desktop (which would be easiest) line 2 can stay as it is
