    I think he means don't bother tonight. If you have one of the patched firmwares it can be pretty time consuming if things don't go right first time, so it's probably better to do it during the day.

    EDIT: Here's 5.3 http://www.villainrom.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=200

    spend the time till friday collecting all the files you need and reading everything you can about flashing and rooting..

    have your sd card backed up on your pc, as i spent quite a bit of the time when i did mine waiting for sd card backups.. and reloads its a nearly full 16 gig card so takes some time..

    the more prepared you are prior to actually starting the smoother it will go for you..

    have fun and im sure youll boss it no probs
