    You can't install a custom ROM - if that's what you mean - just like that, and in any event you would need to back up your personal data first, and also access the phone to enable various settings.

    If your data is really important to you, then remembering your own password/pattern should be just as important. In the future, if you're prone to forgetting crucial information like this, then write your password on a piece of paper and keep it somewhere safe, like a safety deposit box or at the bottom of a drawer full of smelly socks or something.

    The OP can't back things up if he or she can't get into the phone due to forgetting the lockscreen password.
