Air coming out on all sides? or just one side? Maybe forgot to close back the nut?

A few days ago, I had a situation where the electrical switch on the master was leaking, and wouldnt bleed properly. Check for leaks.
Order which you bleed them, drivers front first, front pass, drivers rear, pass rear... I think...

I found the only way to do it on my own, is get some clean plastic hose (about 50cm) that fits snugly on the bleed nipple. Get a clean small glass jar with some new brake fluid in it, and put the other end of the hose in it. It works like the reverse of how a bong works, you can blow air down the cone but if you sucked the cone you'd get a mouthfull of bongwater. Hope this has helped, or at least been funny...

You didn't need to crack the brake lines to do rotors and pads.
Useualy start with the wheel furthest from the master cylinder then work closer.

Just keep pumping the brake until clean brake fluid flows out then push the brake all the way in. Hold it and get someone to lock the bleeder do that on all brakes starting from the furtherest and work your way to the closest to the brake booster. :)

left hand front
right hand front.

its possible there could be a small crack in the brake line letting air in.

You can get bleeders with one way valves on the end but have never used them.

No they do not replace the bleed nipple they are a rubber tube with a one way valve on the end.
You can buy speed bleeders that replace the nipples but I would ask someone who has used them if they are any good.
