Summary

Accurate formula for Poké Radar Shiny Probability in Generation IV; uses minimal constants and properly incorporates in-game roundoff error.

Sources: Chain shiny routine (assembly), derived math with un-condensed formula at the end, and this RNG Research post by Kaphotics

Note: The formulas given by the above sources use floor(x + 1) instead of ceil(x), but the two are identical as long as x is never an integer, which it isn't.

The previous formula on the Poké Radar page did not account for the floor/ceiling function, which made it inaccurate for several early values.
