You are totally correct. The roms are quite the same. My guess is they wait a bit to see if some things go wrong in India. When they see it's fine we will all get that rom.
Or just "Odin" it 🤣.

I think Samsung should use one CSC just like European that use EUX to update at the same time for many countries.

You can update with the INS firmware after download just do not flash CSC. Instead flash the HOME_CSC and it will only upgrade..... Flashing the normal CSC with odin will wipe your device clean...

dirty update the new INS firm wont make problems? its not better to fully update using the CSC?
or it will be ok just to flash with the home csc?
cause if they didnt release it to other region so maybe thers still bugs?

Its is not a dirty update. If you do the OTA update it will basically be the same thing even if it is your CSC. Ultimately the choice is yours.

I am on XFA_OXM and are waiting. If I do not get the update by Friday I will flash the INS with HOME_CSC as I have already downloaded it. Upgrading your device this way will prevent the INS bloatware from seeping into your firmware or device. It will also not change the CSC on your device. In my case it will stay in XFA.....

Yes you will as your update will stay official...
Lets just be clear... If you say OTA update... You will not get the OneUI5 A13 one that was meant for your region as you would have already updated to the official version. But yes you will receive OTA and updates after that..... Hope you understand my meaning....

Just flash home csc and your phone will stay xsg and won't wipe. Yes u can then change back to xsg once it is out. Bear in mind it is always a good thing to wipe with a major software update imo

    How to flash the firmware to your phone:

    1. Extract (un-rar) the firmware file (i.e. to folder C:\Odin) ***
    2. Download Odin v3.14.4
    3. Extract the Odin ZIP file (i.e. to folder C:\Odin)
    4. Open Odin
    5. Power OFF your S22 Ultra.
    6. Reboot Phone in Download Mode: Connect USB-cable to your computer. Hold down "Volume up" and "Volume down" at same time. While holding down, connect the USB-cable to your phone. Or use the command "adb reboot-bootloader".
    7. Wait until you get a blue sign in Odin
    8. Add the firmware files to their designated slots (AP in AP, BL in BL, CP in CP, HOME_CSC in CSC). USERDATA stays EMPTY!
    10. Click the start button, sit back and wait few minutes for the device to automatically restart.

    ** You can always find the LATEST firmware in message #14 (hoping to change to Post 2 )
