Heres what I've got right now, and it isn't working: The positive lead is on X2, the negative on the other DC input hole.
Regulator is bypassed with a wire jumping the two outside holes together, the middle is left untouched.
Also, I removed the LED because I was unsure of polarity and simply bridged it with a wire.
Anything wrong with that? Why might it not be working?

To make it simple just run your positive lead to the jumper that you pu across the two outer leads of the regulator and your negative lead to the middle pin of the regulator.
And take that jumper off where you removed the LED you will just draw current and shorten your battery life. A LED lights when it is forward biased (draws current) and does not light or draw current when it is in backwards unless you exceed it's break down rating.
