I'm not quite sure about the terminology of jb so i want to ask, what exactly is baseband and does it concerns only unlocks or does it affect the jailbreaking process too? Any answers will be appreciated, thanks.

Baseband=modem software. It's what allows connection to the cellular network. Jailbreaking alone has nothing to do with the baseband, but you can't unlock without jailbreaking. If you have a factory unlocked iPhone (you bought it from Apple with no contract and paid a shoebox full of money for it) then you don't have to worry about basebands. Updating firmware updates the baseband too, so you may need to preserve your baseband if you're upgrading/restoring. Basebands cannot be downgraded, but with proper SHSH's, the iOS can be.

Yeah, huh? Did you update to 4.3 in iTunes? Saving blobs doesn't touch your baseband.

Ahh, wwell I hate to tell you this, but you're going to have to wait until there's an unlock if you need one, as well as an untethered 4.3 jailbreak.
