I was able to follow these directions to implement a custom 404 page in SharePoint 2010.

I wanted to make additional formatting changes to the custom page after implementation. including fixing a broken image link. But none of the changes seem to take. I tried different browsers with different nonexistent links and they all show the original version of the custom page.

To set custom 404 - Page Not found, first implement your custom page and deploy it as farm solution in Layouts folder. Once you deploy it into layouts folder execute below powersheell command.

$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication http://test

This will update SharePoint default Page Not Found Error Page and sets your custom Page instead.
