Powerboost 1000 Overheating? Answered

Hello! I bought everything off of the list from Adafruit that you provided and I was testing the Powerboost 1000 board with the battery, but the powerboost board keeps overheating the moment the battery gets plugged in. What should I do?

I have already tested the battery's polarity and it was good. I tried adding a 2.2k resistor to the Li-ion board but the powerboost continues to overheat.

PS. this is my first project

What's connected to the other ends of the black and red wires? It sounds like you may have a short circuit of some kind.
