What you did looks ok to me except that I notice you did not remove
the eol-style property on the jpg files. I think you need:

   svn propdel svn:eol-style *.jpg

Could this be the problem?

Yes, see:

I think you might need to check/set the properties

  svn proplist *.jpg

  svn propset svn:mime-type image/jpeg filename.jpg

  svn propdel svn:eol-style filename.jpg

  cd zips

  svn proplist *.tgz

  svn propget svn:mime-type *.tgz

  svn propget svn:eol-style *.patch

  svn propset svn:mime-type application/octet-stream filename.tgz

  svn propset svn:eol-style native filename.patch
