Never tried the tube way. Made my 1st tubeless setup about 2 weeks ago. I use a booster made of 2l Pet bottle after unsuccesful tried just with floor pump.
I was expecting a stronger popping sound but it was quite faint. For safety I have inflated the tire after the initial setup a a larger presure just to make sure everything is in place.
2 weeks later everything holds in place. Usually I have my tires at 40PS but in general I find them after a few days at 30. Not sure if that is unusual but the same was with the tube set-ups.
Tire was a Venture 47. Hope it helps.
Took one side of the tyre off, tube out, valve in, went up fine and popped that one side of the bead back on fine.
Had some leaks between tyre and rim but now there’s sealant in there it seems to be holding.
