i wanna use 5x5 app drawer.

After testing what I said before, I can confirm that changing the pixel density will result in the 5x5 view. But the best value seems to be 316 - not, as previously said, 300!

To do so, you can simply edit the build.prop file and replace "lcd_density=320" with "lcd_density=316". Use your tool of choice, or the following commands from the terminal. They will a) create a backup of the current build.prop in /system/build.prop.bak and b) edit the existing build.prop file in place (requires busybox being installed (for sed)):

(type bold parts only!)
user@machine> adb shell
shell@mako:/ $ su
root@mako:/  # mount -o remount,rw -t ext4 /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system /system
root@mako:/  # sed -i'.bak' 's/lcd_density=320/lcd_density=316/g' /system/build.prop
Now reboot and you're done. Here's the side-by-side comparison from OP but with the 5x5 GEL Drawer version being added:

As you can see from the screenshots above, the icon size is not affected by the density setting change.
