The amazing Droid X just got a little bit better. A new incremental update was released for the phone that brings it up to version 4.5.621.MB810. Not only does it include some important bug fixes, it also has some useful new features. Here's a breakdown:
Over the Air Updates

Prevents lockups or resets after the Over the Air (OTA) update.
OTA update notice screen displays the correct estimated update time.

Device Features

Improved browser security with the Google Security Patch from Android 2.3.6.
Fixed issue where the device may power ON without user interaction.
Resolved possible device resets while playing music.
Adjusted camera settings will be saved, even after the device is powered down.
Reduced Out of Memory errors.
WAV files can be played from Visual Voice Mail.
Device is enabled with the Wireless Alerting System.
Improved stability of Music Player reduces resets.
Shortcuts to applications remain on the device even after applications are moved to the SD card.

Email, Messaging & Data

I wonder if it fixes the search key while in the app drawer bug.

On any GB blur phone; if you open the app drawer, and then press the search key (or start typing if you have a physical) the launcher FCs.

Okay, mad props to Moto still supporting an old phone but honestly, why? This isn't even the most current X.

Maybe when Google took over they found some updates that were never sent out and now they are sending them out. It really wouldn't surprise me if that were true...
