METHOD 7
Solution For Everyone With Recovery Installed :

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

//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.

    I hastily tried to change my PIN cause my friends saw my old one and put something I forgot. I tried all these methods but couldn't get into adb/usb debugging. Finally I booted into TWRP recovery, which luckily has an inbuilt file manager (Advanced\File Manager). So I went and deleted the file gatekeeper_passcode.key in data/system and it worked. Took less than a minute. No PC or anything special required.

    As of nougat, the files to be deleted are : gatekeeper.passcode.key or/and gatekeeper.pattern.key. Just delete these files or rename them and reboot. The passcode/pattern will be gone. CHECK EDIT BELOW.

    EDIT: You wont be able to put a new pin/pattern by just deleting these 2 files anymore. You need to also delete/rename : locksettings.db, locksettings.db-shm and locksettings.db-wal. These 3 files are also located at data\system. Now your old passcode/pattern will go and you can put a fresh passcode/pattern.

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

    //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.
