<a href=''>This page</a> is a very helpful introduction to programming using OpenOCD and the BCM2835.
Support for the NRF52 is not in the stable release of OpenOCD as of V 0.10, but you can patch it following the instructions on <a href=''>this page</a>. They worked for me, with the small addition that I needed to eliminate two duplicate variable definitions that broke my build.
The `openocd.cfg` will also be different for the NRF52. Here is mine for flashing a binary of the Adafruit bootloader:
transport select swd
source [find target/nrf52.cfg]
bcm2835gpio_swd_nums 25 24
bcm2835gpio_trst_num 7
bcm2835gpio_srst_num 18
reset halt
nrf52 mass_erase 0
