Having trouble using openocd with the nrf52 on OSX

Hi all,

I'm running into trouble using openocd to flash code onto the nrf52840 and then step through it. I'm running High Sierra (although I doubt that's important), and using a jlink (from segger) as my debug tool. My config file is very simple, and is shown below.

source [find interface/jlink.cfg]

transport select swd

source [find target/nrf52.cfg]

I know that this works on a Linux machine, but whenever I run it on mine it seems to arbitrarily exit with no error code. The full command is

openocd -f ./openocd.cfg -c "init; \
reset halt; \
sleep 500; \
flash write_image erase build/nrf52840_xxaa.hex; \
reset run; \
shutdown"

(excuse the backslashes - it's from a Makefile). The return that I get is

I've found the same error elsewhere on this site, but it was related to a memory protection bit that needed to be overwritten, and I don't think that's the case here as I tried running nrfjprog --recover and that had no effect, and also it's working fine on linux. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

UPDATE 7/12

So it turns out that I was running into a very simple problem; I was using the jlink whereas it was working on the linux machine over the usb plug into the nrf52 devkit, hence the difference in results. However, when I run openocd on my mac with the usb connected to the devkit, I get the output below, with an "invalid subcommand" error on my flash write_image erase. It seems like my install of openocd is missing a few things maybe? 

openocd -f ./openocd.cfg -c \
	"init; \
	reset halt; \
	sleep 500; \
	flash write_image erase build/nrf52840_xxaa.hex; \
	reset run; \
	shutdown"
