If you are s-off (or s-on if that zip is the encrypted one
you can simply rename that file to 0P3PIMG.zip and place it on your SD card (not internal memory) and boot the phone to bootloader and let it install it that way.
I can tell you if that phone boots to boot loader you need a new screen name as it is not true.
