    Yes, just make sure he has the latest itunes installed on it before you JB.
    Then you can sync with your mac with no probs after.
    The JB only takes a few minutes and you can do it on any windows computer. Doesn't have to be the one you're using to sync.

    Yep ... with the caveat that he:

    - turn off passcode lock
    - turn on airplane mode
    - turn off find my iPhone

    I only point that out because I did mine on a PC, and it was so strange, I turned on airplane mode and turned off the passcode lock but forgot to turn off my find my phone, and be it a bug or a known issue, it did a full restore and I couldn't stop it in time. Weird. Did it over again with the above 3 steps, no issues on 2 iPhone 6s. LOL

    I have an old 2008 black MB that I installed bootcamp and Windows XP on just so I could finally JB my phone and iPad. It worked perfectly.

    I had been thinking of buying the $199 laptop that was on sale at BestBuy today but decided to try bootcamp and XP. Glad I did because I saved that money and was still able to JB my devices.
