Correct place to put jquery update is "your_theme"/web/jquery.js dont forget to propper cleare caches just now got it working. Also jquery-migrate.js needs to be updated and seems that patch for jquery.mobile.custom.js needed and fix for knockout/template/rendered.js to fix self closing nodes.

Change the jquey file in lib folder.
