Is favicon.ico diff in 2.0/B4, and what's the spec?

I searched on this, but there's tons of stuff from old versions, and the list of things that came up from this board didn't actually address favicon.

I made a favicon.ico and I put it in the root directory of my forum ( and eventually nearly every other directory trying to get it to pick it up. I didn't really want it to be the default for my entire domain, but I finally put it in the root directory of the domain too, to get it to work. And it's still not working.

Is it that I manually have to clear cache (which I'm resisting doing for other reasons)? Is there some META code that I need to add? I see mods -- but this is for 1.x versions -- is this required? I searched all the menus in SMF admin and didn't find anything that mentioned it.

I feel kinda guilty bugging people with such trivia but since I have the question maybe others do too.

I'm told that ccwtimewiz hopes to update the favicon mod (which he recently took over from me) to work on smf 2.x in the near future
