Yes, it is: just mount  -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock6 /mountpoint 

I haven't used it for ubifs yet though; I just tried on qtmoko 33(?) and got a 
wrong filesystem error on mounting; not sure which fs I'm using, I tried jffs2 
as well which I killed after half a minute. jffs2 can take a while to scan the 
flash, but when I used it that way before, it would be done in some 7 seconds 
(on SHR).

lsmod | grep ub does not give any results; 
lsmod | grep jff gives a single result on my currently running system.

I hope it helps a bit,
