According to jailbreak experts it is difficult to rooted jailbreak iOS 11.2.6/iOS 11.2.5 than iOS 11.2, iOS 11.2.1 and iOS 11.2.2. That because of It has many vulnerabilities in iOS 11.2 to iOS 11.2.2 versions and Apple patched those vulnerabilities by iOS 11.2.6 & iOS 11.2.5 updates. Here are the details about bug fixes in brief.
Russ Cox discovered the memory corruption issue arose in iOS 11.2- iOS 11.2.2 running iPhone 5S and later, iPad Air and later, iPod touch 6th generation. This issue leads to execute arbitrary code with kernel privileges. This is most important fact to create jailbreak tool. However Russ Cox report this bug to Apple and They have Patched it through iOS 11.2.5 update.
Rani reported memory corruption issues which are caused to execute arbitrary code with system privileges. The problem is affected to iOS 11.2 to iOS 11.2.2 running iPhone 5S, and later, iPad Air and later, iPod touch 6th generation devices. This issue is a privilege to potential jailbreak.

Electra - Electra jailbreak might be possible iOS 11.2.6/iOS 11.2.5. Coolstar successfully installed Cydia for iOS 11 to iOS 11.1.2 versions after the Electra jailbreak process. iOS, Windows and Linux Developer CoolStar will develop this jailbreak to apply for the latest iOS versions.
Goblin - Goblin is still in beta stage for iOS 10.3 to iOS 10.3.3 jailbreak as well. Therefore we cannot consider goblin tool will support to jailbreak iOS 11.2.6/ iOS 11.2.5 version.
FilzaJailed - FilzaJailed is not a jailbreak tool. It is a root access iOS file manager for iOS 11 to iOS 11.1.2. Jailbreak was the only way to access iOS system root before released FilzaJailed. This will be perfect jailbreak alternative solution for iOS iOS 11.2.6 & iOS 11.2.5 too.
