    It works!!!!!!!!

    I unlocked my broken HTC A9 that was encrypted with a PATTERN LOCK. YES! I used an Insignia OTG cable, and a logitec K830 TV USB keyboard that had a mouse touch pad included. I did have a replacement phone that helped me make sure the touch pad was working, and practice the pattern. My screen was almost completely black so I had to literally use a ruler to measure the exact location of the dots on my screen. I used lipstick (so I could remove them when done) to mark some dots on the cracked screen to help guide me. After approximately 3 trials (I had about 6 left before my data was erased), I was able to unlock it, connected it to my laptop, and recovered every single one of my photos.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! Don't give up!

    The problem with this method is that you have no idea where the mouse is on the screen. I drew out a guide like you suggested but the mouse could be anywhere when you start, that's the frustrating part.
