Default Screen Security not working. Please help! :D

Hi!

I have a rooted Sony Xperia Z, Jellybean 4.3. I am having trouble setting a security lock for my screen. The problem started after I uninstalled the Cyanogen mod on my phone and reverted it back to stock firmware. I re-rooted my device afterwards, using the exact same method I had used before installing the Cyanogen mod (following instructions from Doomlords CWM-based recovery and rooting thread). Now the root works just fine, every other aspect of my phone is working like a dream except for the security lock.

Here is what I do:

Settings > Security > Screen lock > Pattern
I have tried all other locks including PIN and Password but every time I press enter after putting in my pattern/PIN/password, the screen lock does not change from 'Swipe'. My screen lock was working fine on my rooted phone before I installed Cyanogen mod and while it was installed. However, now it seems to be broken.

Is there anything I can do or try to fix this? Thanks a lot for reading and I look forward to your replies!

P.S. I don't really want to install any apps that have a third-party locking system, I would just like to be able to lock my phone as I have usually done it

Do a backup of necessary apps and everithing what is for you necessary, next step is to do factory reset and then fresh install of your rom

Hmm, is that my only option? Is there root application (or any application) I can install that locks my phone in a similar way? That would be more convenient!
