I wonder if it would be possible to boot into a distro on the sd card
and mount the nand partitions. Then you could save /home. Just a thought.
Yes, it is: just mount  -t jffs2 /dev/mtdblock6 /mountpoint
Thank you all for your input..

I put a qtmoko v35 on an SD card.. an on terminal I did:

mkdir /home/root/nandfs
mount -t ubifs /dev/mtdblock6 /home/root/nandfs

but sadly that doesn't work.. dmesg tells me:

UBIFS error: ubifs_get_sb: cannot open "/dev/mtdblock6", error -22

Any ideas?

I think you need to attach the ubifs before mounting. See http://openmoko-public-mailinglists.1958.n2.nabble.com/UBI-success-story-td4218730.html for the steps, though unless you want to reformat, you shouldn't follow all of them.
