I managed to deploy several solution with conflicting features while developing. Now I can't access the admin central, is there a way to see all deployed solutions through stsadm?

you can use

stsadm -o enumsolutions

Be aware that its a best practice to always deploy from the same WFE. That way you wont have conflicts between hanging jobs. The problem is related to the fact that stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs only runs pending jobs on the WFE you are on, not on the entire farm. Gary Lapointe created a job that will run jobs on all servers:

You can use SharePoint Manager to look at all the features which are installed and de-activate the ones causing conflict. This will at least get Central Admin back so you can perform some clean-up of the solutions from there.

SharePoint Manager is really useful for this kind of interaction with your environment:
