How would you best reform Austria-Hungary?

I'd say the best way to make the whole matter easier would be to let all nationality that already has a state go : get rid of the Romanian majority parts of Transylvania
How do you get the Hungarians to agree?

They been spending a lot of effort on Magyarization for the past 30 years, so very unlikely to retreat from that

Either set up a border transfer administration (or a transitional Transylvanian government) to avoid an Indian partition scenario, and do a border similar to the Vienna arbitration border, or maybe, if there is no way to partition this thing in a satisfying manner, make a very autonomous Transylvania
 
Hmm....

First step? Federalize Cisleithania along the lines of the existing kingdoms/borders, with a fair bit of local autonomy atop that. Border Gore To Create German Statelets, while popular with one set of nationalists, is likely to backfire; just insist that German remain the main 'federal/interstate' language of the civil service and insist there be full addressing-the-legislature/courts rights for the top two or three minority tongues in each area. Oh, and pass out noble titles to as many non-Germanophones & non-Catholics as possible.

"Oh, but with things going down that road, the 'minorities' in Hungary will grow restive!"

Well, yes. If they are pro-monarchist or at least willing to settle for the same deals the Galician Poles/Bohemian Czechs/Dalmatian Croats have, then the magnates in Buda-Pest have to explain why they must be denied.
