I am jailbreaking a old bootrom 3gs on 4.3.1. Is there any possibility that it will upgrade the baseband without me telling it to? Also can I tell redsn0w that it is a new bootrom even though it isn't?

redsn0w itself doesnt do any upgrades to neither the firmware nor the baseband. So preserving the baseband depends on the way you follow to reach 4.3.1, for 3GS the only way i know of is by use of custom firmware (created by either PwnageTool for Mac or Sn0wbreeze for Windows), in such case it would be wiser to do the jailbreak along with the upgrade as these tools are primarily jailbreaking tools.

So the summery is: if you are already on 4.3.1 go ahead and use redsn0w, otherwise use sn0wbreeze 2.5 for Windows or PwnageTool 4.3 for Mac.
