As commenters have said:
Once you've found a solution yourself, you can always answer the question yourself and then (after a delay - 24 hours, I believe) accept your own answer. You should also definitely include references to whatever materials you used to determine the solution, so that others can learn from it as well.
You definitely should not accept an answer that you don't feel is accurate or favorable.
