HBase of CDH5 is wire-incompatible with HBase of CDH4 due to RPC format changes. As a result, a live replication between the two is not currently possible.

You do however still have Export/Import support, with the 0.94 option set, as documented at http://archive.cloudera.com/cdh5/cdh/5/hbase/book.html#_import

but its like bulk data copy and i think will not support replication new transaction

Yes that is correct. It was suggested as the alternative to getting the data from C4 to C5.
