Take a MityVac or similar hand vacuum pump, and attach it to the rear bleeder vavle nipple through a Gerber baby food jar that you have put two vacuum nipples on (this will catch the fluid) Have someone pump the brakes about 3 time or so and then hold them, and pump down the jar volume to build vacuum and open the bleeder. Do this several time for each side until only fluid comes out. Y our problem is you have started with the fronts, and now the back refuses to purge air under pressure due to the action of the master cylinder (it thinks your rear brakes are cut!)
