gfxmode is interpreted by gfxterm console driver when it starts. If you
are using plain console, it has no effect. To change resolution during
run-time you would probably need to switch console driver to something
else (see terminal_output command) and then back.

This must be done before output is switched to gfxterm.

You need to use GRUB_TERMINAL_OUTPUT=gfxterm for this to have any
effect. Or load gfxterm manually in grub.cfg or at run-time.
