You don't need to uninstall OpeniBoot to restore. A normal restore erases OpeniBoot for you.

Same here.
My iPhone reboots direcly into iOS when restoring
You don't need to uninstall OpeniBoot to restore. A normal restore erases OpeniBoot for you.

As it was said alraedy, you do not need to unistall openiboot to properly restore
But if the iphone gives you hard time trying to restore I suggest using iReb by iH8sn0w
It helped me restore when I had problems with the restore stopping in the middle ( as you described)
