DFU for nRF52810 on SDK 15.3.0

Dears,

Now I am using nRF5_SDK_15.3.0_59ac345 for my project on nRF52810.

I found a bootloader example at

\nRF5_SDK_15.3.0_59ac345\examples\dfu\secure_bootloader\pca10040e_ble\

And an application example at:

\nRF5_SDK_15.3.0_59ac345\examples\ble_peripheral\ble_app_buttonless_dfu\pca10040e\

And some pre-compiled hex files at:

\nRF5_SDK_15.3.0_59ac345\examples\dfu\secure_dfu_test_images\ble\nrf52832\

Questions:

1. Can I use pca10040e bootloader/application examples for my nRF52810 board directly?

2. I tried to flash device with pre-compiled hex files but it failed with error. Does this mean I can not use pre-compiled nRF52832 hex files on nRF52810?

I searched around at forum and not found any topic on DFU 15.3.0, and my question may be stupid.

But I will be very appreciated if anyone can give me some suggestions.

Updates:

1. I tried pca10040e for ble_app_buttonless_dfu and secure_bootloader, but at last, I got an error like this:
