Installing nRF Util on Raspberry Pi OS

1. Installing nRF Util on Raspberry Pi OS

Running “sudo pip install nrfutil” on a standard Raspberry Pi OS will currently fail (version 6.2.0 wll throw an error). Until this is corrected in pip, we need to use a workaround. That work around is to specifically install an older version. 

On a fresh Raspbian / Raspberry Pi OS install:

1. Install nrfutil into the Python 2 environment (default) and make sure you use sudo:

pip install setuptools
get pip2
sudo python get-pip2.py
sudo pip2 install nrfutil==5.2.0

nrfutil 5.2.0 should now have installed successfully.

We’re all in this together
