Tryign to understand what your askign sir. .9.png's simply put are images that android knows it can adjust the size and placement of text/image on top of. During compiling process apktool compiles the .9.png.

if you have Android SDk loaded there is a batch file called Draw9bat(i think that is the name) this allows you to edit and place the .9 lines. .9 lines are on the outside edges of image and can be the only thing on the outside line of the image..

I hope that helps some..

If you mod *.9.png files you have to decompile this files before edit, personally i use the tool "9patchPngSuite" by kakomalo .
