I've tried multiple guides to get my own favicon to show with no luck!

Oh then you need to remove your icon in metadata

The value of icon is a url, which means it should be located in the /public folder. By putting it in app folder, you don’t need the configuration anymore

Are you using App Router or Pages Router? Notice that the favicon might not be updated instantly since it’s cached by browsers

Put the favicon.ico under your app folder, or configure the path using metadata

I did that
it looks like its showing the default icon which i definitely replace the file

so i guess that's definitely a caching issue

Where is your icon file located?
Try clear the site data and re-open the browser, sometimes it takes longer to see the new one
