Like many others, I have become a victim of 'Too many pattern tries' and have got stuck at the lock screen trying to sign in without data connection or wi-fi. Is there any way to get past this without data rewipe. It's really stupid of Google to have a security mechanism that forces you to wipe your data, meaning anyone can just pick up your phone and spam the pattern till it goes to the email screen (which is what happened in my case).

I have a rooted phone with an unlocked bootloader and USB debugging enabled and I also have downloaded Eclipse Android SDK but have no idea how to use it. It would be nice if someone gave me step-wise instructions on switching on my wi-fi through the SDK so that I can connect over the internet and log in.

Of course, any other legit method is also fine, but the 'home button method' doesn't work for my phone (you know, keep pressing the home button). I have tried getting APKs that will help me bypass the lock screen but they dont work.

Android Device Manager is not able to pinpoint the location of my phone. Do I need wi-fi for this? The only options I see right now for my phone are to change the name, give it a ring or lock or erase.

I have finally found a way. No root or USB debugging required.
