The default grid of the MIUI Home app is a bit small, these are modded MIUI Home apks with 5x6, 5x7 and 6x7 grids (excluding dock).
How to install
1. Boot to recovery
2. Mount /system
  1. adb shell
  2. mount system
  3. exit
Copy the Code
2. Back up the original MiuiHome.apk:
  1. adb pull /system/priv-app/MiuiHome.apk
Copy the Code
3. Push the new MiuiHome.apk
  1. adb push MiuiHome_5x6.apk /system/priv-app/MiuiHome.apk
Copy the Code
4. Grant proper permissions and reboot
  1. adb shell
  2. chmod 644 /system/priv-app/MiuiHome.apk
  3. reboot
Copy the Code
Enjoy!

The homescreen is a bit buggy in landscape mode, I don't know an easy fix for this.

Miui home must be updated for Mi3 too. Playstore has a old icon (not using the newer one)

The xmls are in /res/values-xhdpi/.
A bigger problem was apktool, there is a bug in currently released version causing a build failure. A fix has been commited though, I got it working by compiling and using the current version of apktool.

Comment

Jaapp Thanks. I'm not going to invest a lot of time in this, mainly because the ROM gets updated every week. It's all a bit hacky because it's not open source.  02:36, May-25-2014

This is very good!
Not sure if possible, I wish someone can make a Xposed or WSM Tools modules for convenient switching of MIUI pad grid size.

Yes, I've thought about that. WSM tools probably needs to be modified to work on Nexus 7 II, I've never looked into it though.
