THIS WILL WORK ONLY ON MIUI

After 2 hours downloading, extracting deodexing.. bla bla.. i finally take MiHome launcher from mi max with options for grid size.. it will work only on MIUI rom with android 7.0 ( since app has API 24). i personally tested on MIUI global stable 8.5.4.0.

Also to enable options for grid size, phone must be set to max 440dpi.
INSTALL;
Manually replace MiuiHome app to system/priv-app/MiuiHome/ (delete oat folder if u have)
Set permission to 644 ( -rw-r--r-- )
Reboot

UPDATE FOR NEW GRID SIZE OPTIONS IN MIUI9 HOME LAUNCHER USING THEME METHOD ( NO-ROOT )

Easy method to apply grid size options like mi max have in launcher but this time no root or unlocked bootloader needs...how??? Simply download my modded limitless theme, apply theme and done. U will now have a visible options in launcher for 4x5, 4x6, 4x7, 5x5, 5x6, 5x7 grid size


DOWNLOAD: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1q31MeIb9BfjANYKqyYixWG6-SIqavlKn/view?usp=drivesdk

I personally tested on MIUI 9 developer beta, but should work on stable MIUI9.. Test and report please.
For those who getting third party theme error use this app to apply theme https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mixapplications.miuithemeeditor
Unfortunately this grid size method will works only if u use this limitless moded theme...( i will write a quick tutorial soon how u can apply this to your favorite theme on the fly )
For those who want to include this methot in own theme add lines to yourtheme.mtz/com.miui.home/theme_values.xml
Code:
<integer name="config_cell_count_x">4</integer>
<integer name="config_cell_count_y">5</integer>
<integer name="config_cell_count_x_min">4</integer>
<integer name="config_cell_count_y_min">5</integer>
<integer name="config_cell_count_x_max">5</integer>
<integer name="config_cell_count_y_max">7</integer>

Thanks to Xiaomi, Miui forum,Miui Device team and me

Can u give some more details, what exactly not working? is launcher crashing or grid size not working?

Grid size can be changed ..and MiuiHome.apk is replaced..on reboot by default Nova launcher is running..while trying to change launcher from Home screen and recent option from settings..the MiuiHome /Mi launcher option not there..when manually I click the MiuiHome.apk it says file is corrupt
