    Was the 360 new when you bought it?

    You can try carefully scrapping the tar off.
    I wonder if Microsoft purposely put the tar there to prevent mod chips
    Also why a mod chip, just do the firmware.

    Removing that stuff is a real pain. I'd just forget the chip and flash it.

    Apply a hairdryer on full for an hour or so, the shielding will start peeling up at the edges. It is very receptive to excess heat.
