current and power measurement for nrf51822 (using evaluation kit)

Hello all, I want to do current measurement for nrf51822 which is flashed with my own ble application which uses some custom services. As mentioned in evaluation kit user guide i cut the SB8(solder bridge) and measured the current using multimeter. But i couldn't get meaningful readings(0 mA). Also my device disconnects as soon as it connects with peer client. Does anyone has any idea how to measure current?

Can i use power_profiling application of nrf6310 for PCA10001 for current and power measurement with some modifications?

There is similar question regarding current measurement. I also had a doubt whether it is normal that after cutting SB8 our chip is still working when connected to USB port?
