How can I use nrf52840 BLE Mesh on the Particle B524

Is there an easy way to support the nrf52840 SDK includes?

Thank you,

It is possible to use the nRF52 SDK directly on the Boron, however you would lose all Particle features, build tools, and the ability to use the cellular modem.

You can’t just turn core SDK features like BLE mesh on as that would require major changes to Device OS. I suppose it’s probably not impossible, but among other things it almost certainly will not fit with that enabled. I would not recommend even trying.

On the other hand, certain other peripheral features in the SDK like I2S and ADC DMA can be used from user firmware just by including the appropriate nRF SDK include file. But you can’t do that for the core networking stack.
