If you've tried al the tips suggested, and nothing happens, then the beer is done. Because obviously if it were stalled and you did the various things we knows works, warming, swirling, adding yeast hulls, adding more yeast, and the gravity changed, then it was stalled and is now unstalled. But if it hasn't changed, then there are no fermentables left- i.e. it's done.
