Did you try to add some pizzicata?
But seriously. Electroporation has been the most efficient way in my
hands. You can get up to 10^5 eff. (btw, you can get the recipe from the
Eppendorf homepage at http://www.webcom.com/eppendrf/welcome.html).
xxxxxxxx this is not a typo
Zymo Research claims you can get up to 10^5 eff. with their Frozen-EZ

Nevertheless, I have never heard from anybody getting more than 10^5. If
you find some method that does it, post it here, please.
