what is AppleDecrypt.kext?
are you're using the retail vanilla kernel or something that you downloaded from a Torrent site?

I can tell you that many people who use boot-132 CDs find out they forgot to include a copy of dsmos.kext or AppleDecrypt.kext when they attempt to run the OS and when they finally get to the GUI screen, nothing start up. That's because loginwindow is segfaulting.
Basically AppleDecrypt.kext is one of the 3 common kexts used to execute dsmos_page_transform_hook and return the 2 32 byte values that is needed to completely decrypt the binary. What these kexts do is they are a replacement for the vanilla kext that gets installed with system version updates, called "Dont Steal Mac OS X.kext" - its difference is they perform the same purpose but returns the known decryption key itself. Without overriding this, you wouldn't be able to use the OS, or at least the GUI end, as it is only used with a minimal list of binaries.
removed AppleDecrypt and put dsmos in BOTH the /Extra folder as well as /System/Library/Extensions, rather then just /S/L/Extensions.
"ALWAYS BACKUP BEFORE INSTALLING A NEW KEXTS AND DO IT ON YOUR OWN RISK" Don't say I didn't warn you!
