Default brakes not working right

The other day I was on my way home and the brakes had locked up at a stop sign so I drove it to the closest parking lot. When I went to stop I didn't have power brakes. From there I unplugged a vaccum hose that went to my brake booster, and drove it like 10 minutes to home where I could fix it. I then put a new brake booster and bled my brakes. Now when I push on my brakes there is no pressure and they are REALLY touchy. Please help!!!

Brakes locked up, front or back or both? One wheel lock or two/multiple? Do you get a RABS light or a BRAKE light on the dash? If jacked up, do wheels turn freely by hand?

I don't follow what your saying here

did you bleed the master cylinder first
then the brakes in the proper sequence
