can I use other version of jquery then one included

Can I use other version then included in yii 1.8 which has jquery version 1.6.1

What can I do if I want to use 1.6.4. Can Yii handle this? Right now Yii is automatically loading yii version from assets/ad2b9968 folder in my application, can this be turned off?

Anyone wity jquery experience and yii I’d appreciate your feedback
