Does 5.1 update baseband?
I'm itching to update to 5.1 just because... I'm also jailbroken (Verizon 4S on 5.0.1 baseband: 9A405).
I've saved my SHSH blob with tinyumbrella so I can go back and rejailbreak if I want to. But, I've been waiting for an unlock so I don't want to risk updating the baseband.
I'm relatively new to how unlocking/baseband updating works on the iPhone, so any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

Correct, it was issued by the dev-team

Soon after 5.1 appears on Apple’s public servers (i.e. iTunes starts to offer it), Apple will stop signing 5.0.1 SHSH blobs.
If you have an iPhone4S, the basic rule above is really the only rule: *you cannot restore back to 5.0.1 once the 5.0.1 signing window is closed, no matter what (even if you saved your SHSH blobs).

Hm...the method I use to downgrade is to simply restore the 5.0.1 ipsw while tinyumbrella is running a TSS server to "sign" the older firmware. As far as I know, there's no exploit involved, limera1n or otherwise. Is there something I'm missing?
