I read how it works, and the seed to generate the Jirachi is just taken from the checksum of a section of the RS save. So it is possible on retail.
A program exists that lets you take your save backed up from a cart and it will scan it and tell you what you have to do to get a shiny which the change is just a frame perfect save time. It includes a LUA script to do the save auto on a emulator but you could also basically RNG it on a real cart since it is just saving on the right frame.
After the save is prepped it can be restored on a cart and get the Jirachi using retail hardware.
I guess I should start soft resetting for one, in case they ever patch this bug.
