What's wild is I just had to use my first backup and you bet it had a pattern lock I didn't remember and this would have been handy for a faster result. I ended up entering the pattern wrong so many times it finally asked me for my email address and opened rite up.I now have your zip in case it happens again.thank you and its a great idea

That would mean they need ADB knowledge to push the zip to the phone in recovery since the phone has to be unlocked to access internal storage.

it's easy to push file via abd sideload ! just type "adb sideload FILE-NAME.zip"

however you can flash it with TWRP via USB OTG
