Does nrfjprog generate DFU init file?

I need to generate DFU init files on my Mac for OTA firmware on the nRF51. I haven't found a solution for a Mac-only environment (i.e. no Master Control Panel). I spoke to some Nordic reps at CES last week and they were pretty sure it's possible now with command line tools on the Mac, but how?

Hi Kevin,

you're looking for nrfutil, which can be found here on our GitHub page.

Note that version 0.5.2 and older generates legacy firmware packages compatible with nRF SDK 11.0 and older and versions 1.5.0 and later generate modern firmware packages compatible with nRF SDK 12.0 and newer.

Best regards
