Play the 5th fret harmonic on the 6th string, then play the 7th fret harmonic on the 5th string. The trick is to make sure that both of the notes are ringing at the same time. Watch this video of me tuning the 5th string.

Next play the 5th fret harmonic on the 5th string, then play the 7th fret harmonic on the 4th string.

Then play the 5th fret harmonic on the 4th string, and the 7th fret harmonic on the 3rd string.

Because of the way that the guitar is tuned, you will not play the harmonic on the 5th fret of the 3rd string to tune the 2nd string. Instead, play the 7th fret harmonic on the 6th string and tune the 2nd string open to that.

Play the 7th fret harmonic on the 5th string to tune the 1st string open.

For the top 2 strings, you could return to the method that you used on the bottom 4 strings. Play the 5th fret harmonic on the 2nd string, and use that to tune the 7th fret harmonic on the 1st string. These notes get pretty high, so they are a little bit harder to tune with.
