.attr("checked", "") will set the checked attribute to empty string, which is still true. The mere presence of the checked attribute indicates that it is true. It was a mistake that this set the checked property to empty string in versions of jQuery prior to 1.6, which in a roundabout way got treated as false. This is one reason why it was always recommended to use .removeAttr('checked') instead. Nevertheless, the recommended way to set the checked property to false is

.prop('checked', false)
