Also, the daughterboard which hosts the buttons use a ribbon cable connecting to the mainboard, too. Maybe you can check this also, if it has become disconnected.

Thanks, I will proceed with caution. If I understand your graphic, there are 3 screws that hold the plate at the power button and volume sliders, so removing those gets me access to the buttons. It seems like the button is just stuck in, so whatever spring mechanism under the button is either broken or jammed. Seems like it would be easy to replace, so I will give it a shot. Would you recommend a button, or the cable as well for replacement?

Worst case, I guess I could remove the button and use something pointy to get to the button. The ear speaker blew out last week as well, so I suppose I at the end of the useful life of the phone.

Thanks again!

It's not my graphic, but yes, those 3 screws hold the buttons flex cable. The way I see, you should remove the battery too to get to the screws, unfortunately.
You can find them on ebay, here's one for the buttons:

And with the flex cable part, if necessary:

I have removed battery from xt 925 just as a curious teardown. Most difficult step I encountered was pulling the battery 🔋, that sticky isht was very strong. I almost bent it a bit. So, my advice, take your time with the sticky bit, it requires some serious pulling. But it gets done.

My problem isnt really tearing it down, ive also done a curious teardown on my rhd, my problem is i dont know where to find the parts to do the conversion (battery + back cover)

I can find it on US stores/sites but usually they dont ship internationally
