You need to let it finish, the first few times take ages, but by the looks your NAND has errors, so it will need to fix them before it proceeds. - iDroid Project Community Issue Tracker - My iDroid File Dump - Repos

Basically openiboot is programmed to check itself to see if anything is wrong before it tries to boot corrupt code and screw up yer idevice. If it detects anything wrong, it with run a full repair and it takes a while.
