I use AirServer and it works pretty well (it can do screen mirroring or just act as an AirPlay receiver for Video/Audio).
There is another software I'm aware of, but forgot the name.

You don't install any of the mentioned software on your iPhone. You install on your pc or mac and it becomes a airplay device that the iPhone can airplay to. Nothing change son the iPhone it just looks like there's available airplay devices on your network.

I'm not familiar with Plex, but you probably have to enable it somewhere in settings.

I guess you are extremely confussed or dont really know what you want.
Every iOS device (most of them, I don't know if something old as hell as the 3GS can support it) can act as an AirPlay "Sender" to an Airplay Receiver (e.g AppleTV, special compatible speakers).

What you asked was a way to AirPlay from iOS TO Mac/PC. So all you need is an application installed on your Mac/PC (like another posted said) so that it becomes an AirPlay Receiver, capable of receiving sound, video and screen mirroring.
Such alternatives were already posted, they work great and they all cost.
I don't even understand why you mention jailbreak.

The only "free" alternatives I know of, now obsolete (e.g They don't support Mountain Lion? They don't work on iOS 5+?) are AirMac and BananaTV.

Now, a word of advice, if you do have all of those devices on your signature at home ($$$$$$$), then what's $3 to $15 USD for a software you need? ;)

I realize I'm posting this pretty late, and chances are the OP won't come back, but anyway MacRumors is heavily indexed on google, and I leave this for reference to any future travelers of teh intrawebz.
