You can tell priming by the stroke of the cartridge. It will be resistant the entire stroke. If there is any rapid movement during the stroke while priming, the cartridge is not full.

You didn't do much except dilute the old fork oil. And you didn't even dilute the worst part. All the contaminants collect aroudn the compression valving as the bike sits still. It all settles at the lowest point. And by not removing the cartridge, you left about 30-40% of the oil in the fork. The only way to PROPERLY service forks are to pull the guts out and rinse off all teh internals.
