Yes

Look for xposed additions module to remap keys

I use my volume up button for the power button all the time, the only thing it wont do is turn it on, it will wake, send to sleep and long press brings up the reboot menu

Why did you have to do that? Is your power button dying?

Kinda worried now... does this happen a lot on the Z1? The phone can't be that old, it's been out for 12 months!?

firstly I did because I could. I like playing around and changing stuff

But also when I hold my phone my thumb naturally goes to that spot, so I thought why not change the button..

Ah ok. Very true. The power button's position is a bit awkward in that respect. Bit difficult to press when using just one hand, either left or right.

I guess Sony assumed everyone would use such a big phone with two hands at all times.
