How to bleed brakes when replacing hose

I am going to replace my front brake hoses at the end of this week. I just read the Haynes manual which stated that with ALB on the car, I cannot bleed the car in traditional way. I mean, with the DIY kit(bottle and hoses) and a helper sitting in the car pumping the brake padel. I saw quite some ppl replaced brake hoses on the board and none mentioned the ALB issue. I am just wondering if I can still follow traditional way to bleed it when I only replace the front brake hoses, or it's a job which only can be done by dealer. Thanks.

they may be refering to bleeding of the ALB system which is something that is "supposed" to be performed by a dealer. As for the regular brake system...the one attached to the brake booster...bleed as you normaly would. Sequence is 1) driverside front 2) passenger rear 3)passenger front 4)driver rear

have fun

If I replace both of the front hoses, do I need to bleed all four corner according to the order? By the way, how to release the pressure as discribed on the autozone.com. Thanks!
Anyway, I will consider to bleed all four corner, just have a chance to look at rear hoses.
