Install nRF Util as follows:

  1. Download the nrfutil executable file from nRF Util.
  2. Install nRF Util by doing one of the following:
    • Run nrfutil from the command line in the folder where it was downloaded.
    • Move it to a folder in the system path, to run it from anywhere on the system.
  3. On macOS and Linux, give nrfutil execute permissions.
    Do this by typing chmod +x nrfutil in a terminal or using a file browser (this is typically a checkbox found under file properties).

Next, to install the nrf5sdk-tools command:

  1. Run nrfutil install nrf5sdk-tools.
