Thank you, thank you, thank you! You saved my day!
This worked BUT: The aromafilemanager.zip didn't work, I had to download it from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1646108
So, please update the link, with the zip linked above it worked perfectly!

//edit: And there is one more very simple way, if you have activated the device manager as device administrator (for some odd reason my phone deactivated all device admins, that's why I locked myself out in the first way, I use TimePIN and suddenly my code and the failsafe didn't work ) :
Go to https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager klick on "lock" and enter some pin like 1234, the current lockscreen will be overwritten by the 1234-lock.

Thank you so much!

My Galaxy S2 slipped from my hand and battery popped out. After turning the device on, the phone would not accept my PIN! Strange as it seems.

Tried method 6 initially, but did not work. However went for Method 7 and profit!

I had TWRP recovery already in place, so didn't actually had to use the aroma file manager.

Thank you so much again. Weird days!

Try the option "upgrade from storage"

Normally it's called install zip from sd card. If it's not working, change the recovery.
