It's nearly impossible to bleed without the scan tool. I've seen people flush gallons of brake fluid through some mid 90's trucks and still not have a pedal but the scan too does it in 5 minutes. The scan tool opens the necessary flow to get the air pockets out. I haven't had that trouble with the newer ones like yours though.

Not necessarily. It still might be necessary if you have air trapped in the wrong place.
