Anyone successfully bred a shiny using the Masuda Method in the 4th gen?

For those that don't know, the Masuda Method (a fan made term named after the programmer who coded it this way) is a way to breed Pokémon with a higher chance of getting shiny Pokémon. You simply breed a foreign Pokémon with a native one on your game and it could work. The chances increase about 4x the normal amount, so it's slightly easier.

I have gotten a shiny Magikarp after about 150 eggs, and so far that's my only one I've bred that's shiny.

Do you want to POKéMON with me?

No, I haven't, but I have a Japanese Infernape and a Ditto in the Daycare, but I've never had a chance to hatch any of their eggs...
...Wait, What?
