1) Audio Hijack Pro software by RogueAmoeba, with the SoundFlower plugin.
2) Griffin iMic.
Once you've installed both the hardware and software, do the following:
1) In Hijack Pro, create a session with source type: audio device, and SoundFlower 2Ch as the input, and iMic as the output.
2) Create a second session again with source type: audio device, and SoundFlower 2Ch as the input, but change the output to "Built-in Output."
3) Click the "Hijack" button for both sessions, so Hijack Pro is hijacking audio from Soundflower and routing it to both outputs simultaneously.
4) In System Preferences/Sound, change sound output to "SoundFlower 2Ch".

I have an iMac 2011. When I use boot up in Windows, using bootcamp, I can plug in headphones, while still using the built in speakers. Also I can switch between them using the settings. If it was a hardware switch, I'm sure you wouldn't be able to do that on Windows either.

Specific that I must not simultaneously use the output jack and the speakers of the iMac, but rather the one or the other, and for convenience I do not want every time having to remove the jack (access uncomfortable in my case).
I also tried to install Windows XP (dual boot without Boot Camp), and by doing so you can switch the output to cross the driver, it follows that the limitation is not hardware.
I also tried various utilities, such as Soundflower, but without the desired result.
If anyone has tested something working it please tell me.
I apologize for my GooglEnglish.
Nella mia lingua (In my language)
Specifico che io non devo usare contemporaneamente l'uscita jack e le casse dell'iMac, ma bensì o l'una o l'altra; e per praticità non voglio ogni volta dover staccare il jack (di scomodo accesso nel mio caso).
Ho anche provato ad installare Windows XP (in dual boot senza Boot Camp), e così facendo è possibile commutare l'uscita attraversi il driver, ne consegue che la limitazione non è hardware.
Ho anche provato varie utility, tipo Soundflower, ma senza il risultato sperato.
Se qualcuno ha testato qualcosa di funzionante lo prego di dirmelo.iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)

I have the same problem, my headphone plug broke off inside the jack and my MBP thinks the jack is in use, at least under OS X. I installed Linux for a try and the internal sound output works like a charme, so it can´t be any harware related issue. Still can´t find a workarround under OS X so I´ll be carrying my bloutooth speakers along for now.
