Warning
Don't worry, they won't give you a brickable device like the over-the-air zip.
Description
I've uploaded the stock images for those who want to check out 4.5.91 without trying a custom ROM or creating a brickable device.

You'll still need an unlocked bootloader to flash these images, but they should provide you with a clean version of 4.5.91 that works perfectly.
Download
Click to Download
(under "Gingerbread stock images" label)
(ignore directions above the download)
Instructions
  1. Download moto-fastboot for your operating system
  2. Turn your device off
  3. Boot into "Fastboot mode" by holding down the bottom volume button while pressing power.
  4. Use the following commands to flash the images:
    • moto-fastboot flash boot boot.img
    • moto-fastboot flash system system.img
  5. Use the following commands to wipe data and reboot:
    • moto-fastboot -w
    • moto-fastboot reboot

So I'm confused..how is this different than the other methods of getting 4.5.91? I know one of then can brick if you flash sbf, but isn't the cwm zip safe?

These are completely safe to flash. They don't mess with your bootloader like the OTA or SBF.

So is there any particular benefit to using this instead of the flashable zip beta #4 thing you have in the dev forum?

Why does the brief mobile site say you need CWM? Your instructions just say fastboot. I am relatively new at this so excuse the stupid question if it is one.

So before flashing this we need to unlock bootloader by flashing the pudding unlock sbf. After that can we gain root by using the root.zip found on the other threads by flashing with cwm

So does this work just as well as the other one that was removed because of potentiak damages to peoples phone? I just want to make sure if I use this I have everything working, like the fingerprint reader.
