nrfjprog -f nrf52 --eraseall
nrfjprog -f nrf52 --program feather52_bootloader_v050_s132_v201.hex
nrfjprog -f nrf52 --run
```

The J-Link requires a wire to ensure the target has power. In the image above, red is target power (3.3V), black is ground, green is SWDCLK, and blue is SWDIO.

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='https://primalcortex.wordpress.com/2017/06/10/setting-up-openocd-for-programming-the-nordic-nrf52832-chip/'>this page</a>.

They worked for me, with the small addition that I needed to eliminate two duplicate variable definitions that broke my build.
